Logging near Gunflint Trail to resume at George Washington Pines

Logging and other forest-management practices at George Washington Pines near the Gunflint Trail are part of an ongoing project on Superior National Forest. The project will include tree harvest, prescribed burning, reforestation, fuel reduction and wildlife habitat improvement actions.

While this information is not new with regard to local forest management, it has been a topic of concern for some local residents.

Gunflint District Ranger Michael Crotteau spoke with WTIP’s Joe Friedrichs for an update on the project for 2021. The full audio to this discussion is posted below.
