Timber planning

Aerial of managed timber harvest

The goal of Nongame staff's participation in this 5-year timber planning process is to ensure the continuation of an ecologically sound and diverse forest. This cooperative plan between the DNR's divisions of Forestry and Wildlife utilizes GIS and the Natural Heritage Data bases to provide necessary information to ensure each area (landscape) is managed and harvested to its potential, while maintaining the natural diversity of the forest landscape. Special provisions are given to managing endangered and threatened species when managing the forest landscape.
