There are numerous technical resources and financial incentive programs available to help landowners manage their woodlands. This resource provides Forest Landowners with a toolkit for understanding how, when and with whom to implement stewardship and conservation projects on their woodlands and what financial resources may be available to them.
Department of Natural Resources - County Foresters
The first place you can turn for advice about caring for your woodland is the local DNR office. Each county has a DNR forester available to visit your land and answer your questions. The role of DNR foresters is to motivate and guide landowners to practice sustainable forestry. The DNR foresters make "woods" calls with personalized, individual service, and they administer a number of planning, property tax incentive and cost-sharing programs. For more information, visit the DNR website.
