Redwoods Rising dives into first phase of multi-year planting project
The Redwoods Rising team last month planted about 50 trees along Prairie Creek within Davison Meadow in Redwood National Park, piloting a larger planting project that will be carried out over the next three years. The goal of this project is to enhance the riparian corridor along this stretch of Prairie Creek where currently only a very thin strip of vegetation exists. This program will consist of larger planting events each fall which will likely include Redwood Rising representatives, hired crews, and volunteers. Approximately 300 trees will be planted in 2022, and 700 in both 2023 and 2024.
The December planting involved staff from the League, Redwood National Park (incuding interns), Humbdoldt State University Capstone students, and volunteers. We planted coast redwood, Sitka spruce, willow, cascara, red alder, and big-leaf maple.
