DNR Lands Certification

In 2004, 10 State Forests were endorsed for certification with just over 500,000 acres. In 2009, state parks, wildlife areas, fishery areas and natural areas added an additional 1 million acres of state-owned lands. DNR lands are recognized by both the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) [exit DNR] and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® (SFI®) [exit DNR], nonprofit organizations devoted to encouraging the responsible management of the world’s forests.
