Chippewa National Forest, Minnesota
“Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.” – John Muir
This Gifted Tree Planting Project is in the Chippewa National Forest in Minnesota.
The Chippewa National Forest is located in northcentral Minnesota and covers 667,094 acres. Water is abundant, with over 1,300 lakes, 923 miles of rivers and streams and 400,000 acres of wetlands. The Forest has more lakes and wetlands than any other National Forest in the nation, boasting approximately 13% of all surface water within the entire National Forest system.
Aspen, birch, pine, balsam fir, and maple trees blanket the forest as well as wildlife including bald eagle, several species of hawk and woodpecker, red squirrel, and weasel. In the 1960s, the bald eagle population in the forest was only 12 nesting pairs. Since then the population has rebounded and the bald eagle population of the Chippewa National Forest is one of the highest density in the lower 48 states at 150 nesting pairs.
The Forest was established as the Minnesota Forest Reserve in 1902 and re-established as the Minnesota National Forest in 1908. In 1928, the forest was renamed in honor of the Chippewa Indians from whose land the forest was created.
