“Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.” – John Muir
This Gifted Tree Planting Project is in areas around Somerset County, Maine.
With a past history of intense logging activities combined with heavy moose grazing and grass invasion, regeneration of the forests in these areas will not occur naturally. The purpose of the project is to restore healthy forests ecosystems, which will provide habitat for wildlife and will contribute, at the landscape scale, to the increase of the presence of forest species that have been negatively impacted by the intense harvest that occurred in the region in the past century.
Your project is mostly composed of white spruce, combined with red pine, white pine, red spruce, and black spruce, and will contribute to provide habitat to species that occupy forest instead of open areas like moose, deer, bears, foxes, hares, grouses and many other mammals, birds and insects. It will contribute to the ecosystem resistance and resilience against insects and will also contribute to the capture of carbon through trees thereby fighting climate change.
