Thinning thickens the plotAbout eight years ago, researchers at the Dunbar Forest Research Center started a new red pine plantation. The key to getting red pine well-established here is to get it planted in dry areas. This project is less an experiment, but more of a demonstration of the process you go through to grow red pine in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
