In the 1930’s, tree saplings from Europe, Asia and across North America were planted in a section of the Manistee National Forest near Wellston to see how they would fare in the local climate. Species include scotch, pinyon, Balkan, white, red, jack and Austrian pines, as well as blue, white and Norway spruce.
