The County of Simcoe continues to invest in our forests through its largest tree planting effort in decades. Starting on April 15, the county’s Forestry Department will contribute to Simcoe County’s #greenandgrowing forests through the planting of over 150,000 seedlings within the Museum Tract in Midhurst. The replanting operation is the latest phase of the Museum Tract Forest and Habitat Restoration Project and will be conducted over a 10-day period, as conditions permit. “Our Forestry program is among the most recognized in Canada, and contributes immensely to the lifestyle and quality-of-life of Simcoe County residents,” said Warden George Cornell. …On April 15, the County of Simcoe Forestry Department will start to restore the Museum Tract as a healthy ecosystem and important wildlife habitat – planting seven native species of trees, including Jack Pine, which will account for over two-thirds of all the new trees to be planted on the tract.
