Free White Pine Seedlings Available Via the North Shore Forest Collaborative

The North Shore Forest Collaborative is pleased to offer free white pine seedlings available at four (4) distribution sites, while supplies last:

  • Silver Bay City Hall: 7 Davis Dr, Silver Bay, MN 55614
  • Cook County Community Center: 317 W 5th St, Grand Marais, MN 55604
  • Sugarloaf Cove Nature Center: 9096 West, MN-61, Schroeder, MN 55613
  • Lake County Soil and Water Conser­vation District: 408 1st Ave, Two Har­bors, MN

The boxes of white pine seedlings are set out at the four distribution sites on a first-come, first-served basis. Each box contains 360 seedlings per box and have a marking of “PRT”, which is a Canada-based firm that has nurseries in the United States and Can­ada. The white pine seedlings are of a ge­netic stock from Wisconsin. Please take only what you can plant, protect, and tend to as they grow over the years. The NSFC recom­mends planting the seedlings as soon as pos­sible, and keep the roots moist and cool until planting.

Additional tree planting information is available on the NSFC website: northshoreforest.org

The NSFC thanks Minnesota Power and its very gracious donation of these 40,000 white pine seedlings through its “Rajala Woods Initiative”. For generations, the leadership and staff at Minnesota Power have exhibited an ethic of sustainable environmental stew­ardship, providing tangible outcomes that benefit our region. The Company’s effort to bring back the white pine to the Minnesota forest landscape through the Rajala Woods Initiative (and its sister organization: The Rajala Woods Foundation) pays homage to the long-standing former Minnesota Pow­er board member Jack Rajala (pronounced: “RI-AH-LA”), who literally wrote the book “Bringing Back the White Pine”.
