State foresters are set to begin a three-year timber management project in the Laona School Forest.  DNR officials and Laona students gathered Wednesday to kick off the project. 

DNR Forestry Supervisor Craig Williams says the project will benefit forest health. He says some of the trees in the oldest school forest in the country are aging, and are being affected by invasive buckthorn.
