Everyone on the map below is approved to write the plan you’ll need to enroll in one of Minnesota’s property tax and incentive payment programs.
Why work with a professional forester? Only approved forestry professionals can write approved Woodland Stewardship Plans. The Minnesota DNR, Division of Forestry shares the plan development cost. A current Stewardship plan makes you eligible to enroll in Minnesota’s property tax and incentive payment programs, which can make a big difference to your bottom line. Read more about Woodland Stewardship Plans here. Natural resource professionals are also an excellent source of land care and management advice.
