The regeneration of oak is critical to future health and biodiversity of the Saint John's forest. Our plan to address this problem will begin with planting red and white oak seedlings on five acre plots annually. We will also have to knock back competing vegetation around the seedlings to give them adequate sunlight, and to protect them from deer until they are more than six feet tall. We need volunteers to assist us in the planting, protection, and release of ~2000 oak seedlings annually.
