'Trees are the answer'


Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) forester Jeremy Fauskee and Lynn Vongroven unveil a sign in the St. Croix State Forest December 5 dedicating the planting of approximately 14,000 red and white pine trees in memory of Vongroven's late husband, Steve. The Vongroven family donated memorial funds to pay for the trees. The site is one of many in the forest the DNR is replanting following the 2011 windstorm that damaged approximately 97,000 acres of trees in the St. Croix Valley. Steve Vongroven was a DNR forester for 39-plus years and was fond of the phrase "Trees are the answer."
