Regional Management Plans
- Michigan.gov/regionalforestplansMichigan's world-class state forests offer rustic adventure and enjoyment, provide critical habitat for wildlife, and fuel a vital timber industry. Sustaining our state forests is a huge responsibility, requiring thoughtful and inclusive long-term planning.

Today, the DNR and many stakeholders have worked hard to create Regional State Forest Management Plans (RSFMPs).
