Forest helps restore Michiganís largest state park

Ottawa National Forestís J.W. Toumey Nursery recently began working with Porcupine Mountains/ Lake Gogebic State Parks on collaborative reforestation efforts in the Porcupine Mountains Wilderness State Park, Michiganís largest state park. Seeds collected from the Porcupine Mountains are being shipped to J.W. Toumey Nursery for cleaning and growing in their bare root fields and greenhouses as container stock. So far, maple seeds and oak acorns have been collected and will be prepared for planting. Other species to be grown out during this partnership include balsam fir, northern white cedar, red pine and serviceberry. The nursery will grow roughly 255,000 seedlings over the next five years. A portion of these seedlings will be shipped to the Porcupine Mountains each spring starting in 2018.

I am very encouraged to see increased harvesting on some of the Northern California forests especially the Lassen and Shasta NFs.  There are logging trucks going in all directions. It is like the old days.

Watched Georgia Public Broadcasting program on Longleaf Pine and It's Eco-System.  It's covered gopher tortoises, indigo snakes, pitcher plants, cockeyed woodpeckers as well as the Longleaf Pine.  Impressive that they have a healthy cockeyed woodpecker population on Fort Benning and that how they capture some of those and transplant them to other National Forests.  Also, the indigo snake program.  I recommend it as a program you should enjoy.  The system depends on lightning fires to rejuvenate things.

Keyboardist of the Rolling Stones named Honorary Forest Ranger
 
Chuck Leavell, keyboardist with the Rolling Stones, was named this yearís Honorary Forest Ranger at a ceremony in Atlanta.  He is active in forestry, owning an award-winning tree farm in Georgia.  He is very active in conservation issues and has written two books on forestry. ďThis means every bit as much to me as that Grammy did a couple of weeks ago,Ē said Leavell.  The ceremony was held at the Southern Regionís regional leadership team meeting on February 27.

U.S. Forest Service Works to Restore American Elm on Chippewa National Forest

        (Cass Lake, MN - June 13) - U.S. Forest Service scientists from the Northern Research Station visited the Chippewa National Forest this week to inoculate more than 1,200 research American elm trees with Dutch elm disease to see if their inbred resistance prevents them from succumbing to the effects of the pathogen.
