Do you own forestland? Do you want to plant a forest of the future? Do you want to know if a timber harvest is right for you? Do you want to make your woods healthier and better for
wildlife? Can your woods save you money on your taxes? The answer to these and many more questions are available from your conservation district forester! A free, public service provided
by the Michigan Forestry Assistance Program, gives landowners access to quality information and technical assistance on how to best manage their woodlands. These foresters can help your
register for appropriate cost-share and tax break programs, and provide you with quality, professional service providers who can help give you confidence that the health of your woods is
of the utmost importance. Remember, a healthy forest is no accident.
