Mixed Group Planting on the Nicolet National Forest
During the fall planting season of 1936, the Nicolet National Forest initiated, on a large scale, a new method of mixed planting, especially adapted for the reforestation of large tracts. In this method, two or three species of different cover requirements are mixed in groups, the size and location of which are determined by the distribution and density of protective vegetation and by the cover requirements of the species planted. This mixed group planting, as it was called, has now passed the experimental stage and has become a standard method of planting on the forest.
