 Gogebic County, Upper Michigan, Forests, Wildlife, and Recreation.

 Upper Michigan is one of my favorite places with cool summers, snow filled winters and some of the best Sugar Maple in the world.Woodland Management Service Forester in upper michigan

With over 9 million acres of forestland, and not that many people, this place is a real treasure.

 

This place may be a little tough on the deer with deep snows and less food than we see in Wisconsin or Lower Michigan, but you will find more of some of the other wildlife species like Bears, Moose, Wolves and much more.

I am always impressed with the quality of the forests in the UP and so are many others who seek the high quality Sugar Maple that grow here so well, including many areas that are famous for their Birdseye Maple lumber.

Maple forestsThese Maples and the Northern Hardwoods that they grow with comprise the largest portion of the forest land here with nearly 4 million acres. 

Aspen also comprises a significant component with 1.5 million acres which are critical for wildlife like deer and grouse as well as producing great timber.

In Gogebic County, at the Western most tip of the state, we have some of the best forests of the UP with nearly 670 thousand forest acres.

The largest timber component in this county is Northern Hardwoods with world famous Sugar Maple totaling 400 thousand acres.

These Sugar Maple and other Northern hardwoods provide top dollar sawtimber and veneer for owners of land in this region.
