The ShokoShoe Vegetation Management Project is one that has been several years in the making along a wide swath of forest between the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Middle Gunflint Trail.

A decision has been made by Gunflint District Ranger Michael Crotteau regarding when the project will take place and what those plans look like moving forward. The final plans do involve clearcutting sections of the Superior National Forest, prescribed burns near private property on Hungry Jack Lake and other popular locations in the Middle Gunflint area.

WTIP’s Joe Friedrichs spoke with Crotteau about the ShokoShoe Project, which will likely start in 2018.
