Tree Planting

  • This spring Friends of Arisaig Park planted 1500 seedlings.
  • white pines and yellow birches
  • in the areas that have been cut down in response to the collapse of the spruce stand which has hit the park. These saplings should overtake the landscape as the cut trees go back to nature.
  • during the fall season, park workers plant larger developed trees
  • This is a long-term project. The wide swaths of felled trees are planned fire-breaks. Many of them are showing new signs of life.

The eventual goal is an Acadian Forest environment, with only trees that grew naturally in Nova Scotia before mankind arrived.


Yes, that’s the Bluenose just off Arisaig Point.
