Forest Action Plan

Keeping forests a vital part of Wisconsin life

Wisconsin’s Statewide Forest Strategy is a statement of intent by those most involved in the protection and sustainable management of Wisconsin’s forests regarding how to address the trends and issues that have the potential to significantly impact Wisconsin’s forests over the next decade. It provides a long-term, comprehensive, coordinated approach for investing resources to address the management and landscape priorities identified in the Statewide Forest Assessment.

 

Best Management Practices

Wisconsin’s best management practices (BMPs) program is quasi-regulatory. The agencies responsible for BMPs policy development are the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources- Divisions of Forestry and Water, the US Army Corps of Engineers and the Department of Agriculture.
