We want you to be involved in state forest planning - also known as our compartment review process. Our plans for the forest include harvesting timber, planting trees, prescribed burning and maintaining fields and open areas – activities that help to provide wildlife habitat, control invasive species and improve the overall health of the forest. You’re invited to look over proposals, view maps of the affected areas and provide feedback. Here's how:
The Open House: Your Opportunity to Participate
Each year, forest management recommendations are presented at open houses - informal sessions that give you the opportunity to speak with foresters, wildlife biologists, and other resource professionals. Use the interactive map below to find information on upcoming timber sales, tree thinnings, prescribed burns and other management activities. You can simply type in an address to find out what's planned nearby. The map highlights actions that will occur in 2020, and is updated for each forest management unit one month before the open house. Tell us what you think!
Compartment Reviews: The Final Decisions
Attend compartment review meetings to hear DNR professionals make final decisions for the future of the forest.
If you can't make any of these meetings, or if you require accomodations, contact us. If you need assistance using the map, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
