Improving Minnesota

Interest in white pine has been growing in Minnesota during the last decade, leading to a recent task force report containing comprehensive regeneration strategies and recommendations. One recommendation is that the number of white pine trees and the number of acres with young white pine trees should be doubled within the next seven years. Also, the number of acres in white pine cover type should be doubled within the next 50 years. In 1997, the Minnesota legislature appropriated $1.12 million to begin implementing this recommendation. The appropriation will be divided among private, county, and Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) lands.
