Forest Plantations in Northern Minnesota
Abstract:A study by the author of coniferous plantations in northern Minnesota showed that they are usually successful in old fields, on recent severe burns, and on brush-free sandy soils. Deer and rabbits do much damage, but hazel brush is the most difficult factor with which the planter has to contend. Disking and the planting of balsam fir may be feasible methods for its control by public agencies but would be too expensive for use by private owners.
