Woodland Stewardship Plan Writer

DNR forester and landowner walking in landowner's woodlands

Having a Woodland Stewardship Plan is a great step to keeping your woods healthy. When your plan is registered with the DNR, you can enroll in one of Minnesota's property tax and incentive payment programs (2c Managed Forest Land and Sustainable Forest Incentive Act). Plans must be updated and registered every 10 years to stay within the program you enrolled in.

Only DNR-approved forestry professionals can write Woodland Stewardship Plans that make you eligible to enroll your land into the state's property tax or incentive payment program. Everyone on the map below is approved to write a Minnesota Woodland Stewardship Plan.

To view plan writers by county, click on the searchable table tab and type your county in the search box.

    • The pin indicates the mailing address of the plan writer, not the county in which the writer works. Many plan writers work in multiple counties.
  • In some versions of Chrome, you may not be able to get plan writer results when you click on a pin. Instead, use the searchable table or different web browsers, such as Edge, Firefox, or Safari.
