Potawatomi State Park logging set to return in October

Logging of beech and ash trees in Potawatomi State Park will wrap up next month before returning in October. Park Supervisor Erin Brown-Stender says the operation got off to a slow start this winter due to other commitments of the contractor. There is not a quota, per se, but rather specific areas of the park where the trees need to be thinned.

 


The Emerald Ash Borer became a problem at Potawatomi beginning in 2015. It is thought to have been brought in on firewood used by campers. Beech bark disease is caused by both a fungus and a scale insect that feeds on the tree’s sap.
