New service from MFA:
Boots on YOUR Ground Program. 
For payment of just $50, landowners can have a 2-hour walk on their land with a forester.  The program is currently limited to MFA members statewide and, thanks to the Blandin Foundation, to anyone in Itasca County who owns 20 or more acres of woodland.  Review and print an application.

MyMinnesotaWoods is a great source for woodland-related discussion and information!  Here is a recent update. Also, here is an archive of past issues.

See a recent report on Wood Markets including a piece about a study that concludes biomass is a carbon-saving fuel, even when compared to natural gas.  Also see the most recent Minnesota Forest Industries Fact Sheet.

With support from the Blandin Foundation, MFA has produced two public service announcements touting the contributions private woodlands make to Minnesota's overall forest economy. Read the associated press release and then listen to and download PSA #1 and PSA #2.
