Longleaf and Wiregrass Restoration
Under the leadership of Refuge Forester Daniel Barrand, the Lower Suwannee Refuge plans to plant 45 acres of longleaf pine on 19 sites and 15 acres of wiregrass plugs on 4 sites on the Levy County side of the refuge.
This restoration project is a site conversion from slash pine to longleaf. Fifty-four thousand containerized longleaf and 18,000 containerized wiregrass plugs will be planted at a density of 6' x 6', which will be 1,200 trees per acre and 1,200 plugs per acre.
