This is an ongoing study that began in 2015 and is expected to wrap up in 2020. There are two major goals of this study; (1) evaluate the effectiveness of girdle-herbicide control of below ground spread of oak wilt disease centers in field applications, and (2) develop operational guidance for the...

Many black spruce stands in northern Minnesota are impacted by a parasitic plant called dwarf mistletoe, or Arceuthobium pusillum. This pathogen causes growths to form on infected trees, which decreases the timber yield that is able to be harvested from a site through increased tree mortality...

Stand origin: The area was historically dominated by red and white pine which was maintained by frequent surface fires (fire return interval of approximately 7 years). Most of the pine was liquidated in the 1890’s and rafted down the nearby Oconto River. Following the cutover, advanced understory...

This is a 24-acre jack pine stand near Norris Camp in Beltrami Island State Forest, in northern Minnesota. It was clearcut between mid-November and late December, 2007. Slash was scattered across the site. Some scarification occurred during logging. All paper birch, spruce, balsam fir and unmarked...

In 2009, the west side of the 22.5 acres were harvested and the later the south side was salvaged cut, to eliminate two-lined chestnut borer in the stand. The objective after cutting was to create an even-aged stand that increased the stocking of northern red oak and maple, essentially making it a...

This was an attempt to improve our success with natural jack pine regeneration in Central Rich Dry Pine Woodlands (FDc24) by maintaining a live onsite seed source. It was one of six sites chosen for an Adaptive Forest Management Project, intended to demonstrate creative solutions to persistant...

Oak wilt first appeared in two sites on the property in 2002. Vibratory plows are not feasible on the site, so an herbicide field trial was initiated in 2003. In these trials, infected trees and healthy trees a certain distance from the infected are treated with an herbicide. Sites continue to be...
