The capped trees are located at St. Philip's school forest, which is a portion of the Mississippi Headwaters State Forest located south of Bemidji.

DNR forester Jim Gubbels, oversaw the students and demonstrated how to cover the young tree shoots to make them less desirable as a food source for deer. Pioneer Photo/Submitted photo
