Jack Rajala is a timber man, the third generation of a family of timber men who played a part in cutting down all but a few remaining stands of the white pine forests that once covered central and northern Minnesota. Yet Rajala is also a conservationist, one of the foremost advocates - and practitioners - of returning big stands of white pine to the Minnesota forest. After public foresters had more or less given up on planting the tree in meaningful quantities because of disease and deer depredation, Rajala and his family bought thousands of acres for the express purpose of planting millions of trees, mostly white pine.
