After the Greenwood Fire: reseeding the forest

This spring, the USFS conducted aerial reseeding over hundreds of acres as part of ongoing efforts to restore a previously pristine area. The Greenwood Fire burned over 26,000 acres in the Superior National Forest (SNF) and earned the title of the most extreme wildfire event of 2021.

As a result, they encourage those who live and recreate in the Quetico Superior region to be watchful.
