KETCHIKAN — The U.S. Forest Service is planning a big cedar planting project for Alaska’s Prince of Wales Island.
The 700-acre project is scheduled to take place over the summer, according to the Ketchikan Daily News.
Most of the areas are in the shaded north slopes of mountains, said timber stand improvement forester Damien Zona.
“These are areas we’ve projected where yellow cedar will be doing well in the future,” he said.
At 100 yellow cedars per acre, the Forest Service will be planting about 70,000 trees.
