New Seedlings Take Root in the Shade of Aldwell's Ghost Forest
On Thursday [Jan. 24], [Olympic National] Park staff, with assistance from three volunteers, planted 250 western red cedars in the southwest section of former Lake Aldwell [behind what was the Elwha Dam, now totally removed].
To provide the seedlings with optimum conditions in an otherwise harsh environment, the volunteers planted them in the shadows of giant cedar stumps, relics of the forest that covered this landscape before dam construction.
The old stumps are providing “safe sites” to a new generation of cedars.
