State regulators have reached a decision on forest management along a trail network known as the Chippewa Hills Pathway in Alpena County. According to Up North Live, The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says the final plan includes a 50-percent reduction in harvest acreage and a requirement that harvesting take place on just one side of the trail in many locations. Also, it reduces the number of spots where equipment will cross trails. It says the DNR will work with the Ruffed Grouse Society to plant shrubs and other fruit-bearing plants that will benefit wildlife.
