Woodland stewardship

A woodland stewardship plan from the Minnesota DNR can help you identify and achieve goals for your land. 

Woodland Stewardship: A Practical Guide for Midwestern Landowners, 3rd Edition provides information for woodland owners interested in identifying goals for their property and working with a professional forester to choose the best management practices. The book is also available in print.

See our resources for starting out as a woodland steward. There is advice for those who are new owners as well as anyone interested in volunteering on lands owned by others.

Getting a woodland stewardship plan

Woodland Stewardship Plans are a specific kind of woodland management plan through the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Plans are always prepared by a natural resource professional in your local area.
