2014 Plantings

photo 5The quantity of plantings was not large in the spring of 2014, but HRF still planted nearly 50,000 trees over the course of 4 project areas.  Three private landowners improved their properties greatly with the addition of acres converted into future forests.  The Iowa DNR added 71 acres of new forestland with HRF planting in excess of 43,000 trees along the Missouri River bottomlands at Nottleman Island Wildlife Management Area.
