Cost Share Funds are again available through DNR Forestry. Here is more information. And here is a map showing DNR CFM Foresters who can help you apply for the funds. Also, here is a webinar covering all DNR service options for private woodland owners.
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! Read a recent update.
See a recent report on Wood Markets including news about a possible gold rush on the Iron Range and America's first tall timber building going up in Minneapolis.
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.
