The Goal Healthy and diverse native ecosystems at Haynes Point now and for future generations Haynes Point Ecosystems Rare ecosystems found nowhere else in Canada with rare species that are vulnerable to extinction or extirpation. The issue Over time non-native and invasive trees have established, shading out and out- competing native species that rely on native ecosystems for survival Russian olive How did we get here? Introduction of invasive species, water level control, lake eutrophication (adding nutrients) and recreational development have all contributed to changing the growing conditions and species composition at Haynes Point. Restoration objective To remove non-native invasive trees and replace them with native trees and shrubs to ensure: Healthier ecosystems Habitat for rare species Education opportunities How we get there Careful planning of removal of non-native invasive trees (Russian Olive, Tree of Heaven and Siberian Elm) in select areas Re-planting with native species over the next 10-15 years (antelope brush, willow, etc.) Community volunteers and partnerships Tree of heaven Measuring success Monitor outcomes 8 Treatment units Planting by ecological community Cottonwood-water birch
