The research taking place on the Cutfoot Experimental Forest ASCC site on the Chippewa National Forest in northern Minnesota was recently highlighted in the Minnesota Daily.
University of Minnesota PhD Candidate, Jacob Muller, recently published the first data-driven research paper on the Cutfoot Experimental Forest ASCC site in Forest Ecology and Management. The Minnesota Daily article highlights Muller's research assessing the performance of future climate-adapted tree species in a northern Minnesota pine forest ecosystem. The article also includes quotes from Dr. Brian Palik, Research Ecologist with the USDA Forest Service Northern Research Station and site lead for the Cutfoot Experimental Forest ASCC site, and Dr. Linda Nagel, Professor and Department Head of the Forest and Rangeland Stewardship Department at Colorado State University and ASCC Network Lead and Principal Investigator.
