Have a say in how your state forests are managed

Michigan’ 4 million acres of state forestland require a lot of careful planning to keep them healthy and thriving. That’ why the DNR finalizes plans for each forest management unit two years in advance of when any management activities – prescribed burns, timber harvests or tree thinning, for example – actually will take place.

This summer, forest management recommendations for 2020 are being presented at open houses within those forest management units, giving people the opportunity to speak with foresters, wildlife biologists and other resource professionals. Upcoming open houses include:

  • Cadillac Forest Management Unit Aug. 15 in Cadillac
  • Escanaba Forest Management Unit Aug. 15 in Stephenson
  • Roscommon Forest Management Unit Sept. 12 in Roscommon

About a month after each forest management unit’ open house, a public compartment review meeting also will take place. That’ where the foresters will present their final decisions on management activities for that unit. Compartment review meetings coming up include:

  • Gladwin Forest Management Unit Aug. 7 in Harrison
  • Atlanta Forest Management Unit – Aug. 9 in Atlanta
  • Pigeon River Forest Management Unit – Aug. 15 in Vanderbilt
  • Escanaba Forest Management Unit Sept. 5 in Escanaba
  • Cadillac Forest Management Unit Sept. 11 in Cadillac

For more information – including a link to the interactive forest map showing details of forest management activities, and the forest open house and compartment review schedules – visit the public input section of the DNR’ michigan.gov/forestry webpage.
