PINE FOREST CLIMATE STUFFS GEOLOGY AND GLACIER FUN Our patch of WI takes up the northern part
of the state.
KETTLE DEPRESSIONS and steep ridges These types of forests are generally
found large, continuous glacial outwash or lake plain landforms. Thanks, WI DNR Fires (which are vital) are not easily
impeded by any sort of wetlands or
hills. This is why the pine forest is so
suited to a lake plain landform and
glacial outwash HUMANS AND THE FOREST When the Europeans settled around
the pine forest, they cut down many
trees for timber. European settlement meant the
REPRESSION of forest fires
Not good. These forests need FIRE
to REGENERATE Native Americans, however, didn't
hinder forest fires. They knew that fires
helped the regeneration of the forest.

Big surprise there.

the regeneration of forests So when the settlers came in
and tried to suppress the fires,
that wasn't so great Today, prescribed burns are
implemented to regenerate
naturally the forest Adequate precipitation for good vegetation (20-40 inches of rain anually). About 40-120 inches of snow
falls per year in Pine Forests. Pine forests have warm-to-cool summers and very cold winters. In January the average temperature ranges from 0º- 25º F.
The average max low is -10º to -40º F. And 60º-70º F in July.

The average max high is 90º- 100º Forest fires typically occurred
about every 175 years, creating
a new generation of trees
