Forest Planning

Managing our shared forest resources

As stewards of Wisconsin's forests for over 100 years, the Division of Forestry is dedicated to long-range planning and managed forest growth. Effective plans start with good data and a comprehensive understanding of issues at hand. We are committed to communicating about wise use and sustainable management of our shared resources.
