Forestry for Wildlife
Wisconsin has nearly 17 million acres of forested land, and these areas provide ecological, societal, cultural, economical benefits to landowners, recreational users, and wildlfie. Healthy forests are crucial to the health of many wildlife species, and there are many resources and programs designed to aid private landowners in the production and maintenance of healthy forest ecosystems. The Wisconsin DNR provides helpful resources on their website.
The UW-Stevens Point College of Natural Resoures also provides resources through the Wisconsin Forestry Center, which is an outgrowth of the Forestry Education and Development Initiative (FEDI). This center is dedicated to serving the needs of Wisconsin's forestry community through partner-driven professional and WOrkforce development, applied research, and community outreach initiatives that promote vibrant, sustainable forests and forest-economies.
