Planning documents

Master plan

Updated and approved in 2017, the master plan reflects a review of the 2003 plan and sets the management objectives for the next 15 years. The final approved plan and maps are posted online.

Public involvement

In state forest management, operations and monitoring public involvement is part of sustainable forestry. We seek public involvement because we believe people, communities, organizations and businesses realize the potential public benefits of state forests and are willing to work to further the goals of sustainable forestry.

Timber sale program

The state forests are managed sustainably for multiple uses. Active timber management is a part of that overall effort on many parts of each forest. Timber is advertised for sale typically from one to three times annually, depending on the size of the forest. The DNR timber sale pages have more information about the timber sale program. Specific timber sale information can be found on the Brule River State Forest timber sale program page as well.
