The St. Croix watershed includes more than 2.75 million acres of forest. Keeping those forests healthy is essential to ensuring healthy rivers, streams and lakes. Healthy woods and waters host healthy wildlife, thriving communities and strong local economies.
Forest stewardship benefits landowners, their woods and their communities. We help landowners identify goals, find a forester to write their plan, and carry out their forest stewardship practices once a plan is in place.
Planning for your woods is only step one. Good forest management requires those plans to be put into action. We help landowners learn about responsible practices and connect them with trained experts to carry out projects and practices in their woods.
Planning for your woodland means learning about your woodland. We provide tailored information from our resource library to help landowners learn about their woods and options for managing it. We also connect woodland owners with experts and peers for advice and guidance.
For many landowners, their woods will be the legacy they leave for their children and communities. We work with landowners to identify options and connect with experts to ensure their woods are around for the future.
