Blackduck State Forest


Forest Landscape: The forest's rolling terrain, mixed soils, and many lakes are the result of past glacial activity. Aspen and northern hardwood cover much of the forest, while black spruce, tamarack, and cedar now grow on the wetter sites.

Management Activities: Management activities include timber harvesting, timber stand improvement, tree planting, and trail maintenance. The forest is also managed to provide habitat for white-tailed deer, ruffed grouse, waterfowl, bear, and many other wildlife species.

History: Blackduck State Forest was established by the Minnesota Legislature in 1935.

Acres: 125,529
