W.K. Kellogg Experimental Forest
Established on abandoned agricultural land, the 716-acre W.K. Kellogg Experimental Forest is an MSU AgBio Research Station known worldwide for research on tree breeding and genetics, planting techniques, and plantation establishment and management. Over 157 tree species from around North America and the world can be found at Kellogg Forest.
Currently, research is being conducted that focuses on genetics, the forest carbon cycle, forest health, and regeneration of native hardwood species and the many variables that hinder the process.
There are also demonstrations throughout the property focusing on the various methods of forest management from pre-planning to final harvest and reforestation with educational signage.
Kellogg Forest offers a unique opportunity for the public to learn about forestry research and management directly while also providing access to recreate. Please note that some areas of the forest have limited or restricted public access. This is related to visitor safety, security, and protecting the integrity of research. Please respect signage and the privilege to recreate on such a unique landscape.
Enjoy your hike!
