Ash Inventory Backpacking Weekend

June 29 - June 30
Iron Mountain Gap TN 37692 + Google Map
$45 – $60

Join MountainTrue on our first ever weekend backpacking trip as we journey to the Iron Mountain Gap area of Pisgah National Forest. This trip is an opportunity to hike through one of the most remote ash groves remaining in our WNC forests. This area, like many across Western North Carolina, is at risk of losing it’s graceful ash trees, as they are threatened by a new pest. This pest, the Emerald Ash Borer, feeds on important tissues in the tree and kills it- unless we can treat the tree first. On this trip, we will be inventorying the ash trees by collecting data on the size, number, and condition of the trees affected by the Emerald Ash Borer. By completing this inventory, we can help prepare for treatment of the trees, to keep them standing for generations to come. This section of the forest is home to everyone and everything from Appalachian Trail thru hikers to elk migrating in the late fall and early spring. Because of its more secluded location, we need your help to complete the inventory!
