Frazee School Forest undergoes selective logging
The Frazee School Forest is a bit thinner after about a week's worth of selective thinning of 18 acres of Norway pine trees last week.
According to Department of Natural Resources Forester Howard Mooney, Frazee alumni and teachers 25 to 45 years ago planted the pine trees. Planted in rows, the thinning involves taking out every fifth row of trees to allow the remaining pines room to grow.
