DescriptionThe 1 ¼ million acres of coniferous swamp forest in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan are important to industry, game management and water conservation. Because there was little knowledge on handling this type, foresters in 1950 began a program of research in swamp forest management. The first project was a survey of recent swamp cuttings. The survey shows that now forest stands are becoming established on the cutover swamps under present logging practices, but these new stands contain a larger proportion of hardwoods on all soil types.
