Pine River Watershed

Details

The Pine River Watershed lies in central Florence and northern and central Forest counties. The watershed is approximately 219,247 acres in size and consists of 348 miles of streams and rivers, 6,893 acres of lakes and 35,145 acres of wetlands. The watershed is dominated by forests (76%) and is ranked low for nonpoint source issues affecting streams and groundwater and is ranked medium for nonpoint source issues affecting lakes. There are four dams in the watershed.

Ecological Landscapes for Pine River Watershed

Ecological Landscapes

The Pine River Watershed is located primarily in the North Central Forest Ecological Landscape which occupies much of the northern third of Wisconsin. Its landforms are characterized by end and ground moraines with some pitted outwash and bedrock controlled areas. Kettle depressions and steep ridges are found in the northern portion. Two prominent areas in this Ecological Landscape are the Penokee-Gogebic Iron Range in the north extending into Michigan, and Timm's Hill, the highest point in Wisconsin (1,951 feet) in the south. Soils consist of sandy loam, sand, and silts. The vegetation is mainly forest, with many wetlands and some agriculture, though the growing season is not as favorable as it is in southern Wisconsin. Lake Superior greatly influences the northern portion of the Ecological Landscape especially during the winter season, producing greater snowfall than in most areas in Wisconsin. The historic vegetation was primarily hemlock-hardwood forest dominated by hemlock, sugar maple, and yellow birch. There were some smaller areas of white and red pine forest scattered throughout the Ecological Landscape, and individual white pines trees were a component of the hemlock-hardwood forest. Harvesting hemlock to support the tanneries was common at the turn of the century, and the species soon became a minor component of forests due to over-harvesting and lack of regeneration. Currently, forests cover approximately 80% of this Ecological Landscape. The northern hardwood forest is dominant, made up of sugar maple, basswood, and red maple, and also including some scattered hemlock and white pine pockets within stands. The aspen-birch forest type group is also relatively abundant, followed by spruce-fir. A variety of wetland community types also are present, both forested and non-forested.

Town Of Florence: Frog Lake Eurasian Water Milfoil Removal: The Town of Florence in cooperation with lakeshore residents of Frog Lake will sponsor a project to remove/control large beds of Eurasian water-milfoil hybrid. A large EWM hybrid bed will be treated in accordance with the DNR issued Aquatic Plant Management permit in spring of 2005 and possibly again in late October, 2005 depending on summer growth. Weevils will be added to the pond and lagoon in early summer 2005. Hand removal by lake association members will be ongoing. This integrated pest management process will be repeated as necessary for at least the next five years.

Products:
1) Articles about the project will be written to local newspapers.
2) Frog Lake residents and landowners will be updated about the project through direct mail and email.
3) Chemical treatment of EWM beds in accordance with DNR issued Aquatic Plant Management permit in addition to weevils, and manual removal following WI-DNR recommendations.
4) Pre and post treatment surveys (for known and unknown areas of infestation), mapping the location and densities of EWM hybrid, will be conducted.
5) An aquatic plant survey, using the WI-DNR point-intercept methodology, will be conducted. Electronic and paper data made available to the DNR.
6) Final report will be made available to the DNR, other interested agencies, local organizations and media

Northwoods Land Trust, Inc.: Florence County River Conservation Project: Northwood\2019s Land Trust, Inc. proposes to conduct a direct mail education campaign with all property owners on the priority river and stream segments in Florence County that were identified by the DNR Northern Rivers Initiative. An information packet will be provided highlighting voluntary conservation options those property owners can utilize to protect the priority stream corridors. Those options include conservation easements, land donation, land registry and conservation buyer programs. Individual on site property assessments and conservation planning will be conducted with any landowners who express interest.

The project includes the following goals: 1) Direct mail information packets describing voluntary conservation options private landowners can utilize to protect their properties. This information will include how the options can protect land while also providing income, estate and other tax benefits to landowners. The mailing will include all private property owners with at least 500 feet of natural shoreline on these priority river segments; 2) Conduct on-site follow-up contacts with interested landowners as generated by mailing and media publicity; 3) Encourage interested landowners to voluntarily enter into perpetual land protection agreements or utilize other land protection tools to protect their priority river/stream segments.

Project deliverables include: 1) Copies of color GIS maps of each of the towns with digitized parcel maps will be provided to illustrate the parcels/landowners identified within 500 + feet of existing natural shoreline frontage; 2) A generalized listing of Florence County landowner follow-up contacts by program type will be provided.

The WDNR will be provided electronic and hard copies of all data and or reports/plans generated as a result of this project.
