M. J. Baughman, Paul V Ellefson

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


County governments in NE Minnesota manage nearly 2.8 million acres of tax-forfeited land, down from 6 million acres in the 1930s. Although land disposal slowly continues, counties plan to retain most of their land for uses such as timber, wildlife, recreation, minerals, waterway frontage, and access to other public land. They may dispose of land suited for agriculture, housing developments, commerical uses, and industrial sites. They retain land which, if sold, would require additional public services.-Authors
