Letter from Minnesota DNR

The following is a letter we received from the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources in May, 2009

Dear John and Chris:

Thank you for the generous gift you made to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to help fund tree planting projects on state lands. Your gift will go a long way toward ensuring that healthy forests are available for Minnesota's future generations.

The $8,486.30 you designated for the DNR's Deer River Forestry area will enable 35,795 red and white pine seedlings to be planted on state land on two sites in Itasca County. Each site will be "marked" with a sign that identifies how a gift from Mickman Brothers Inc. made possible the planting of this future forest.

Your gift to the DNR is just one more thing to add to a long list of conservation efforts you have accomplished over the years, including helping to establish the Balsam Bough Partnership. I not only thank you for this recent gift to the DNR, but also for your recognition that Minnesota's forest resource is renewable if it is nurtured, protected, and wisely used in the years ahead.


Dave Epperly, Director
Division of Forestry
