Title: Vegetation of the McCormick Research Natural Area

Author: Metzger, Frederick T.;

Date: 1973

Source: Naturalist 24 (1): 4-11.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: The 17,000 acre McCormick tract, nestled in the Michigamme Highlands of Michigan`s Upper Peninsula, has rested quietly since the white pine loggers broke camp 70 years ago. The few occasional visitors have been hikers, fishermen, hunters, and trappers, who left little imprint on the land. The roads that eventually dissected the surrounding area never penetrated here. This untrammeled and undeveloped condition makes the McCormick tract, willed to the U. S. Forest Service by Gordon McCormick in 1969, an especially valuable experimental forest.
