  • Forest-management experiment at the Biological Station

    In an aspen-dominated hardwood forest at the northern tip of the state’s Lower Peninsula, U-M’s scientists are testing ways to make the region's forests more resilient to climate change. About 12,000 mature trees--mostly aspen--are being cut on 77 acres at the U-M Biological Station, a 10,000-acre research and teaching facility just south of the Mackinac Bridge, near the town of Pellston.
