When Dr. Seno put her land into trust, she made certain it would be used for forestry in addition to education. Very few people know that we are a commercial forestry operation right in the midst of Southeastern Wisconsin.
Our trees are grown for dimensional lumber production and managed toward that end. On April 9th, 2016, we planted 1,500 seedlings of White pine, Red and White Oak, Black cherry and Shagbark hickory to replace the Ash that we lost to the Emerald ash borer. The diversity of planting will help to ensure its health and support a wide variety of native species that depend on these trees.
Harvest will not be for a good, long while. For the next several decades we will be able to enjoy the myriad benefits of these trees.
