"The Ojibway the neither the Ho Chunk menominee, Potter Wannabe, and other tribes. This was an area that was invaded by European people mostly in the nineteenth century and settled pretty quickly. The Paul Bunyan era brought in a logging boom. The latter part of the eighteen hundreds they were going after the giant White Pines, these are the the redwoods of the of the mid western us if you like up to eight feet in diameter and over two hundred feet tall. Majestic for us, they were full of wildlife, and of course, it wasn't just big trees was big animals to we had woodland Bison we had woodland Caribou We had elk deer course lumberjacks were hungry though, and so the critters were shot out to fill the stoop pots at the same time that the forests were felled. And I want to give your listeners jack a sense of what a biological. Holocaust. This great cut over period was in the latter eighteen hundreds and early nineteen hundreds. This cut over caused just devastated the forest. I mean it was a Moonscape by the time they were done with that. All the big animals were lost and most of the big trees it was so reduced by logging George, weyerhaeuser pulled up stakes skipped out on his taxes and moved west. we had an on October, the eighth eighteen, seventy one by the way the same day as the Chicago fire, the largest and deadliest wildfire in American history. This Pest ago firebird one point two, million acres across three count on one and a half times. The size of Rhode Island it killed somewhere between fifteen and twenty five, hundred people nobody knows because all the records were lost twelve citizen. Towns disappeared. The. The point here is at the Pentagon fire was just one of many of these devastating fires that were were. By the logging slash that was leftover for there, I've seen parts. Of Michigan.

So this biological Holocaust following the great cut over is a period. When the Midwest big mammals, we lost our giant trees. We've lost the wolf in the Moose accepted Minnesota we lost Cougar and Wolverine. We lost the woodland Caribou the elk the Woodland Bison. And deer were very rare northern Wisconsin extra painted in the southern part of our state. This devastation I feel convinced the devastation and the Midwest led to the first big wave of conservation. John was from Wisconsin and it was he of course, lobbied so hard and ultimately successfully to create our first national parks But we also this is the era on the lady eighteen hundreds of million nineteen hundreds where we have our first protective game laws would be of the Migratory Bird Act we see the creation of the national forests. So, what we had leftover from this logging period was a lot of bare ground. And it's a tribute to the resilience of the landscape that the forests have grown back most people by the way visiting the Upper Midwest and especially the forests in northern Minnesota Wisconsin and Michigan have little inkling of just how destroyed those force were and they. They're not always able to recognize the difference between the second growth forest that have come back and the old growth there was originally here the. Weeks Act of nineteen eleven allow federal dollars to buy up forest land in the eastern U. S..
