Planting a New Generation at Boston School Forest
The Boston School Forest (BSF) was established in 1937 when Mr. Harry Boston donated 80 acres of his cropland to the schools of Portage County. For the next 30 years, students planted over 111,000 trees to establish a red pine plantation with a few white pines and spruce trees scattered throughout.
For nearly 80 years, BSF has employed the best forest management practices available to create a sustainable and healthy forest for future generations of students. Cutting down some older trees now opens up space and resources for new trees to grow up tall and strong. On August 25th, 2016 loggers began the 5th thinning of Boston School Forest.
