Project Description

This Gifted Tree Planting Project is in the Custer-Gallatin National Forest, Montana. Encompassing more than three million acres, Custer-Gallatin is known as one of the most ecologically diverse landscapes in the region.

As Gateway to Yellowstone National Park, the National Forest features rugged mountains, including the tallest peak in Montana (Granite Peak), and remote buttes and bluffs. Part of the forest is named after Albert Gallatin, U.S. Secretary of the Treasury and scholar of Native American languages and cultures. Within the forest are Native American burial grounds, pictographs and petroglyphs.

While the lower elevations are often covered in grasses, as well as large stands of ponderosa pine, higher altitudes, with more abundant rainfall, support Douglas fir along with several species of spruce, cottonwood and aspen. The habitat supports over 300 wildlife species, including the grizzly and black bear, elk, mule deer, bison, moose, bighorn sheep, cougar, wolf, bald eagle and peregrine falcon.
