Where forest & forestry resources come together for all users!

Sponsored by the Michigan Forest Association and Michigan State University Extension



Updated Michigan Forests Flyer
Revised 2012

  The purpose of this website, and among participating organizations, is to promote science-based forestry and resource conservation.   Through the sharing of information and education events, we hope to reach two primary goals:

1. Provide clearer understanding among all groups about forest and forestry education resources and opportunities.

2. Reduce inefficiencies and duplication in our educational programs to relieve the strain all non-profit groups are feeling in their budgets.

Thinking of a timber sale? PLEASE call a forester before engaging a logger.   Learn more about why.

We hope that you can find your way to the information that you seek.  If not, please let us know how we might provide additional avenues of inquiry. Keep in mind that this website is not designed to include the wealth of information, program information, and other materials that are provided for by others.  Rather, we hope this website might serve as a directory of information for just about all people interested in forests and forestry. If you wish to speak to a forester, you can try MSU Extension Forester/Biologist Bill Cook at 906-786-1575 or email him at cookwi@msu.edu.
