GRAND RAPIDS, MN (KDAL) - UPM Blandin and Minnesota Power have started a reforestation project on 90 acres of land along a transmission line that was vacated by the power company.  In exchange, Blandin has granted Minnesota Power a 130 acre utility easement on UPM land north of Nashwauk.  The easement exchange will result in new infrastructure enhancing electric reliability while promoting a healthy forest.  The land exchange is in accordance with the Upper Mississippi Forest Project conservation easement agreement signed with the State of Minnesota in 2010.
