Woodland Organizations

Woodland Advisor
Information on classes, volunteer opportunities and other news.
 
This new organization focuses on women's interests, although men are welcome to participate.  While they do not have a web site yet, more information can be obtained from Angie Gupta AGupta@UMN.edu.
 
 
 
 
 
Wooded land doesn't have to cover hundreds or thousands of acres to provide richness and diversity of life. Smaller acreages can have big impacts too! If you are one of the 6 million landowners in the United States who own 1 to 10 acres, then the Backyard Woods program is for you.

Backyard Woods inspires landowners with a 44-page guide and detailed tip sheets that cover 12 topics. Learn how to develop a master plan, protect property from wildfire, plant properly, and much more.

Tree Care Advisor
Similar to Woodland Advisor but in an urban setting.
