A "Song of Success" For the Kirtland's Warbler Habitat Creation Project
WeWood recently supported the planting of 4,000 trees into American Forest’s Kirtland’s Warbler Habitat Creation Project in Michigan. So often we understand the value of replanting trees, but do not realized how important the restoration of trees contributes to the housing and safety of countless species of plants, animals and birds. Over 20 years ago, a Kirtland’s Warbler habitat project was American Forest’s very first Global ReLeaf project. The Kirtland’s Warbler is an endangered song-bird. The brashly singing, beautifully plumaged Kirtland’s Warbler is five-plus inches of unabashed energy cloaked in gray, black, brown, and bright yellow. Weighing in at approximately half an ounce, the bird journeys from its winter home in the Bahamas to nest in a very specific part of Michigan’s North Woods. “If the warbler’s exacting nesting requirements aren’t met, it doesn’t do a very successful job of reproducing,” says scientists. Since the initial ReLeaf project 20 years ago, the Warbler has made a tremendous comeback,k but there is still work to be done, hence WeWood and American Forests’ are commitment to planting more trees there.
