John Muir's Inspiration, Marquette County Wisconsin, teaming with Wildlife and Forests 

  John Muir may be famous for the things he did out west, but this little county in Central Wisconsin is the bit of Nature's beauty that inspired him.

His boyhood home is now a park where you can go to see the kind of forest lands that inspired him.

It is not just a great place to raise famous people, but it it also a great place to raise Pines and those Oaks that our Wildlife love so much.

  Our clients at Woodland Management Service own a significant amount o land here with Quality Pines for great income and Oaks which are not much for quality timber but they do produce some fantastic wildlife habitat that attracts plentiful deer and turkeys.

Marquette County is home to 130 thousand acres of forest land. 

  Most of this forest land is poor quality Oak and High Quality Pine with 64 thousand acres of Oak forests which provide premium deer and turkey habitat and another 35 thousand acres of quality Spruce, and Red, White and Jack Pine forests which provide good winter habitat for the wildlife and good income for the forest landowners.marking timber

These forests are not only good for producing income for our clients and great habitat for Deer and Turkeys, but it also provides good habitat for many other wild animals like Bear, Wolves, Grouse, and more.

  If you are interested in purchasing land in Marquette County or if you already own some and would like to learn more about how to improve this land, give me a call, our Foresters and Wildlife Specialists can help.

Bob, I think lots of people connect John Muir with the west but I'm sure there are many, like me, who didn't know of his connection to Marquette County, WI. Thanks for sharing

Bob, my father introduced me to John year he wanted to go to Muir Woods just outside of San Francisco and I am so glad he insisted, now I want to go back and revisit. Glad his inspiration spread across the country., Endre

Over the next few weeks I'll be hiking the John Muir trail here in Orange county for the first time.  I didn't know he was from Wisconsin, but from your photo's it's easy to see how that upbringing led him to his later work.

Many of us can not even imagine that much forest land. We think of National Parks.

Bob, I have always been a fan of John Muir, but did not know his childhood home was located in Wisconsin.  BTW Great to promote forestry.  

Enjoy the woods!

John Muir created so many trails out West.  It is good to see his home honored in such a way.
