Forest Description

Named in honor of Chief Cornplanter,the famous Native American leader of the Seneca tribe, who maintained peace between the fledgling United States government and the Iroquois from 1784 to 1812. Today, Cornplanter State Forest covers 1,585 acres in Forest, Crawford and Warren counties. It is one of eight state forests located in the PA Wilds region.

Wild and Natural Areas ( 2 )

  • Natural Area
    Anders Run Natural Area
    The Anders Run Natural area maybe small, but it contains many old-growth white pines, some over 4 feet DBH. (Note: the term "diameter at breast height" or DBH is used by foresters to define tree size, along with height. DBH is the tree diameter measured about four feet off the ground.) Like other accessible timber stands in the upper Allegheny River watershed, the original forest cover was logged sometime in the first two decades of the 1800s. Growth ring counts of wind-thrown trees indicated an age between 200 and 225 years. There is a walking trail system almost two miles long through the area. There is a native trout stream and several fine stands of wildlfowers. There is an historic residence on the property built in 1841, known as the "Little Stone House."
