Planting Trees in Michigan

Hiawatha National Forest


Located in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, the Hiawatha National Forest is tucked among three of the five Great Lakes. This park is a destination for outdoor activity, with hiking and biking trails, long stretches of shoreline, lighthouses, and plenty of room for camping. But the tree canopy is in need of support.

Planting efforts within this majestic National Forest are focused on ensuring the future health of the forest. Hemlock, jack pine, and eastern white pine are being planted to promote species diversity and increase wildlife habitat value. This work will improve the health, vigor, and resilience of the overall forest ecosystem for generations to come.
