Halsey, Nebraska is best known for the miracle of the Nebraska National Forest, a hand-planted forest covering over 20,000 acres within the Bessey Ranger District of 90,444 acres in the sandhills of Nebraska. Ponderosa pine, Eastern red cedar and jack pines make up the majority of the forest trees. View a short video about the creation of Halsey Forest here produced by NET Nebraska.
