Document Description
This project involves hand planting of recently burned timberland. Approximately 1,200,000 of trees will be planted over two years. Trees are planted to be hand planted (using a hoe-dad) at a prescribed density of 222 trees per acre (TPA) in some areas, and 170 TPA in other areas. Each individual tree planted will have an area of one-foot diameter which is cleared to bare mineral soil. The project site is private property owned by Red River Forests LLC, and managed by W. M. Beaty & Associates, Inc., that was burned in the 2014 Day Fire. Of the total project area of 5,847 acres, approximately 2,500 acres of the project was previously mixed conifer forest, with the remaining 2,300 acres being composed of east side ponderosa pine forest.
