The Forestry Assistance Program works to provide an initial professional contact with landowners who are interested in forest management on their property. The District Forester’s role is to provide general guidance, basic management planning, and referrals to other public and private resource professionals. Qualified Foresters interested in pursuing the project(s) described on the project referral list should respond to their Conservation District within two weeks of the posting. District Forester, Ellie Johnson, will then forward all interested Qualified Foresters’ contact information to the landowner. The landowners will be encouraged to contact all of the foresters who reply in a timely fashion, the choice on which professional to work with remains with the individual owner. The District staff will follow up with all landowners to ensure they receive the assistance they are seeking. Please contact the District Forester if you would like more information on any project:
