Woodland Stewardship Plan

As a private landowner you want the best for your woods, wildlife, and water. In order to get the best out of your property having a plan in place is a must. A Woodland Stewardship Plan will address your goals for your property which can include but not limited to: Increasing wildlife habitat, maintaining ecological diversity, increasing forest cover, maintaining open areas for high quality forage, and timber harvesting for overall health of your timber. Why not get rewarded for your hard work? After you have a written plan you are able to qualify for two different tax break programs. Get started with your Stewardship Plan here.

Stewardship PLan

For each stewardship plan, we like to take a walk through your woodland with you, the landowner. It is on this walk that we get a chance to meet you and get an understanding of your concerns, objectives, and goals.

Timber Management

There are multiple types of timber harvests available and we will help guide you through the harvest process with knowing your timber value, finding a logger, managing the sale, and prescribing the type of harvest that best suites your goals. We work for you!


The way you manage your forest will ultimately impact the wildlife that reside on your property. We love wildlife as much as you do, and we will work with the goals you have in order to get the most out of your property. We are constantly learning new ways to improve land for specific wildlife so learn with us!

reduce your Taxes

Reduce your property taxes with enrolling in either the 2C Managed Forestland or SFIA programs after getting a written stewardship plan. We will assist you in knowing what program is right for you so can enjoy your property and save the most money!

What clients say about us

I wanted to reach out to say thank you for your work on my Forest Management Plan.  I really enjoyed the “walk through” at my property.  Your extensive knowledge, insight, and management ideas were very informative.  I learned a tremendous amount and I now have concrete ideas on how to further improve and better manage my property for my long-term goals.  Your help in navigating the cost-share paperwork with the DNR and outlining the various tax savings options was also extremely helpful to me.  Lastly, I very much appreciated the hard copy Forest Management plan and maps and I will refer to them often.


Thanks again and I would highly recommend you and Dickson Forestry to anybody looking to develop a Forestry Management Plan for their property."

Scott Benson/ Senior Vice President, Unit Leader / Lockton Companies

We wish to express our appreciation for the services Dickson Forestry has and continues to provide us in the management of our land and forest. Their interest and understanding of our desire to balance hardwood regeneration, game management, erosion control and prescribed burning was key to a successful woodland stewardship plan. 


Paul and Jaden have made the whole experience from walking the property to drafting the plan enjoyable and educational experience for us. They promised we'd never look at our property the same and that is SO TRUE!


We would highly recommend Dickson Forestry to anyone with land ownership!

Greg and Lacey Buss

We had recently purchased some land that had never been managed and we were not certain where to start.  I contacted Dickson Forestry after hearing Paul at a DNR event on Land Management.   Paul met me at our property and walked the property and provided us with several options on how to best manage our property.


Our decision was to have part of the property logged at this time.  Paul (Dickson Forestry) walked us through each step of the process.  Once a logging company was selected and a start date was determined, Paul and I met with the logger.  When the logging started, Paul recommended I come up and see how the process was going and answered any questions I had.  During the logging process Paul kept me updated on what was being done and the daily harvest results.


Working with Dickson Forestry made the whole process from start to finish educational and a fun to see each step.   I would highly recommend Dickson Forestry to anyone who needs a Land Management Plan and is thinking for logging their property in the future.
