School Forest

Logging scheduled for the section of Phillips School forest encompassing a volunteer-built trail system located in the Town of Worcester has raised concerns from a group of citizens who recreate on the school-owned property.

Discussions regarding logging this segment of school forest — along with another section located along the Elk River — began back in July 2019 with the school forest committee. Bids were received, and a contract was signed with the Hayward logging company FutureWood on Feb. 3, authorizing cutting to begin immediately and be completed two years from now on Aug. 1, 2022.
