Wisconsin Forests

Forests are more than just trees. They are a complex community of plants and animals that constantly change, grow, and interact with each other and the nutrient-bearing soils upon which they depend. Once, more than half of Wisconsin was covered in vast stretches of forest: maple woodlands, spruce and pine groves, oak savannas, riverbottom thickets, and more. Over time, the axe, the plow, and the bulldozer have changed that landscape into a patchwork quilt of forest divided by towns, fields, and roads. Some forest wildlife like to live deep in the forest, others prefer living at the forest's edge. Some wildlife need young forests, others require mature, or "old-growth" forests to survive.
