The Wisconsin Consulting Foresters (WCF) is a non-profit association whose members are professional foresters. They provide forestry consulting services in Wisconsin and pledge to advocate sound, sustainable forestry practices and to advise landowners of the consequences of deviating from these practices. Continuing education, ethics, sound science and sustainability are important pillars for the WCF.

About the charter

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and representatives of Wisconsin's forestry industry negotiated the Green Tier/Wisconsin Consulting Foresters Environmental Results Charter to establish voluntary methods that can be used to improve forest management practices for consistent protection of the State’s natural resources. WCF will offer training and a mentoring program that will involve members and college students who are studying forestry. It will also partner with economic development professionals to ensure sound business practices are discussed. Members will benefit by being recognized as a WI Consulting Forester member and charter participant.

This charter will protect the environment by providing for:

  1. Commitment to the protection of water quality, soils and forest productivity
  2. Compliance with government regulations that impact forest management
  3. Conformance with acceptable silvicultural standards
  4. Participation in ongoing training and continuing education
  5. Application of aesthetic management techniques
  6. Development of forest management plans concurrent with existing standards and guidelines
  7. Utilization of sound business management practices
  8. Continuous improvement of alternative regulatory and non-regulatory methods
