In September 2006 this site was covered with mature jack pine forest. In the next five years two small plots along the north boundary were logged. In 2011, timber harvesting began.

By August, 2013, less than half of the native jack pine forest remained.

The logged area is being allowed to regenerate to jack pine forest from the seed bank in the ground and from residual jack pines along the edges.
