Forestry Assistance Program for Contractors

Consultants on this list will be notified when landowners inquire about land management projects.  Information about interested consultants will then be forwarded to the landowner.  We encourage landowners to contact all interested consultants in a timely fashion, but they may delay, change their mind, or go with another consultant.   The choice on which consultant to work with remains with the individual landowner.  Our office will follow up with the landowner to ensure they get the assistance they need.

Below is a list of resource management projects within our service area. Consultants interested in pursuing a project described below should respond by email to before the closing date.    You may include additional relevant information in your responses or as attachments.  I will forward your e-mail responses to the landowner.

Project #: 49-23-32

Date Posted: 5/25/2023

Date Closing: 6/8/2023 @ 4:30 PM

Location:   T43N R2E Sect. 4

               & T45N R1E Sect. 30

               & T47N R1E Sect. 14

Acres: 480, 640, 470

Forest Type: Mix

Work Requested: Forest management plan for QFP.

Comments: 3 groups of contiguous parcels.

     The southern most is composed of a couple stands of young aspen, northern hardwoods, and cedar.

     The second contains a large portion of agriculture land surrounded by forest that is composed again of regenerating aspen on wet soils. The property was logged in the last 10-15 years before it was sold to the current owner.

     The third property, located on Sugar Island, was also harvested at some point before the current owner took possession. The canopy of sugar maple with a red oak component was reduced significantly and a new cohort has established primarily of sugar maple on the drier sites and red maple/balsam fir on the wetter sites.

     The landowners’ primary goals are recreation and wildlife viewing. Along trails, they indicated a desire for mature stands that are easy to walk through. They also seem to recognize the importance to a diversity in age class and species to supply necessary components for diverse wildlife habitat requirements.
