Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
March 9 Great place to view wildlife and walk. by Al sr.
August 2 speaking in praise of bur oaks
Why not contact the Commissioner, Tom Landwehr, about the cutting of the oaks. The DNR commissioner has changed with the new Dayton administration and maybe the impetus for cutting oaks, as well.
July 27 Forest Harvesting by Mother Nature
Forest harvesting is a good thing.Mature oak trees block out sunlite that other vegetation need to grow. New trees will be planted and vegetation will grow and feed the wildlife.In nature forest fires do this but in areas close to houses harvesting is the best opption.It is good for the wildlife and brings in money for other conservation projects like blue herrion nesting in the WMA.This is all a part of wild life management and a part of nature.I have been in forest areas all over MN and WIS. The MN DNR does a great job of forest management.
