Can forest therapy enhance health and well-being? - Harvard Health Blog

Who needs a little forest therapy?

health.harvard.edu When you were a child and your mother told you to go play outside, it wasn't just because she needed some child-free time. Inspired by a Japanese practice, forest therapy is an immersion in nature that has been shown to have positive effects on health.

The beautiful fall colors are really starting to shine, what a beautiful week we have had so far!

What a beautiful fall day!

We are finishing up some logging just in time for hunting season. All the guys did a great job and the woods look great! We look forward to working with them again in the spring.


Wow does it feel like fall! We are looking out the window at 10 different bucks, and just watched one take another right to the ground. It seems early for more than a little sparing, but what fun to watch!!

There are at least 10 bucks in our yard right now. Two separate groups are sparing at the same time. I love this time of year!!

It is such a beautiful morning up here at the Ranch. An end to these warm days is not yet in sight, but who is complaining it is summer! Here is a picture from this morning.

About the Ranch

Welcome to the Drettmann Ranch!

The Drettmann Ranch offers expertly managed nature trails and scenery to enjoy in a highly diverse ecosytem. Take a walk, visit one of the many creeks, or have a wildlife encounter. No matter what you do, you will feel replenished after getting back to nature at the ranch.

The Drettmann Ranch was founded over twenty years ago, and today is located on just less than 1,000 acres in beautiful Northwest Michigan. It is a diverse piece of land that incorporates several different ecosystems. From the high ground with rolling hardwood forest, to the thick waterlogged cedar swamp, you will experience a landscape that will put you up close and personal with Mother Nature. Each year, we look forward to providing guests the opportunity to enjoy our luxurious lodge while exploring the Ranch as well as the surrounding villages and towns. This area of Northern Michigan has an endless number of things to do, but often we find people enjoy the privacy and relaxing nature of the Ranch and never wish to leave. The choice is yours! The Drettmann Ranch welcomes you to stay with us and experience an unforgettable trip. You will have a truly memorable time whether it is a family vacation or a couple's getaway.
