The Wisconsin DNR Forestry News is for everyone who enjoys and cares about Wisconsin forests.  The posts will share highlights of the Wisconsin DNR – Division of Forestry programs and management of the forest resources in Wisconsin.

The 17.1 million acres of forests that cover nearly half of Wisconsin and the millions of trees in our communities are vital to the quality of life in Wisconsin. Our forests provide myriad social, cultural, ecological and economic benefits we all use every day, from clean air and water to wildlife habitat to outdoor recreational opportunities to hundreds of wood and paper products. The Division of Forestry administers programs that protect and sustain these forested lands throughout the state, combining technical and financial assistance, planning, research, technology, education and policy to help meet the many demands on the forest both today and for many years to come.
