RE:  VERSO CLOSING MILLS IN WISCONSIN RAPIDS AND DULUTH
 
 Mills will be “indefinitely idle” beginning this spring and summer.  The Rapids mill takes a fair amount of wood from the U.P. in a market that’s already currently challenged.

Nature Conservancy Buys More Than 2,000 Acres of Land in Superior National Forest
Minnesota Star Tribune, Oct. 7, 2020
More than 2,000 acres of land and six wilderness lakes deep in the heart of Superior National Forest will soon be forever protected. Mike Freed, a retired forestry professor, sold the land this week to the Nature Conservancy, which plans to keep it wild as a corridor and refuge for animals, trees and other wildlife.

Minnesota DNR Wants Black Spruce Cones, and Has Upped the Price Per Bushel
Minneapolis Star-Tribune, Dec. 31, 2020
The state's black spruce seed cupboard is bare. So the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is paying people $85 a bushel — up from $70 last year — for the cones to meet spring orders for reforesting. The pay was bumped up to attract more people to cone-picking, and the push is on.

17-Year Cicadas to Emerge in Michigan This Spring
 WDIV-TV, Feb. 2, 2021
 Sometimes referred to as the Great Eastern Brood, the Brood X periodical cicada is a 17-year cicada that last emerged in 2004. Periodical cicadas spend most of their lives as larva, burrowed in the ground, taking a full 17 years to mature from nymph to adult, feeding on nutrients and fluids from the soil and small roots. When it's time, the buggers tunnel to the surface and wait for the soil to warm to about 64 degrees. Hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions per acre can appear simultaneously in some areas, according to U-Mich researchers, leaving behind an exoskeleton as they fly off to sing and mate.
