There’s a Forest in Minnesota that Looks like Minnesota

You’ve probably seen designs in cornfields created by farmers, but have you ever seen a lumberjack get creative with a forest?

Bill Lockner, a forest engineer, created the ‘Minnesota Forest’ back in the early 90s. According to atlasobscura.com, he was clearing a huge area of dying pine trees in northern Minnesota, when he decided to have a little fun. He removed all of the dying trees and left a healthy forest in the shape of our state.
