How Much Wood Could a Woodchuck Truck? - Huntington Forest White Pine Harvest
As part of a research and demonstration project funded under McIntire-Stennis, sixteen acres of 96 year-old white pine were harvested in the fall of 2012 on the Huntington Wildlife Forest. The objective of this research was to investigate the economic feasibility of growing white pine on nutrient rich sites where hardwoods would normally grow. In addition to the economic factors, changes in the suite of bird and mammal species utilizing the site is also being investigated.
