Management

Peters Marsh has undergone many changes. During the late 1800's this area was extensively logged for white pine and hemlock. During the 1930's wildfires kept the new forest from maturing. As a result these fires early succession species such as aspen dominate the area. Modern forest management practices have maintained this timber type to this day.
