Totally surrounded by the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest, this 80-acre Bayfield County property was one of the few remaining privately held lands within the national forest. This property includes a mature stand of northern hardwood forest. Parcels like this are under intense pressure from recreational and second-home development. TPL was able to act quickly and meet the needs of the landowners, ultimately transferring it to the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest so that the opportunity for public ownership would not be lost.
