DNR Forestry keeps Minnesota's forests and trees growing strong. Minnesota's 59 state forests, school trust acres, and other forested lands make up the 4.2 million acres we manage. Our forests need care and management to provide clean water and natural resources for future generations. With this in mind, we weave sustainability into all of our forest work—from what trees to plant, to what areas to harvest, to what places to preserve.
