Forest Stewardship Plan
Cost Share Program
Lake of the Woods and Roseau Soil and Water Conservation Districts are teaming up to deliver a Forest Stewardship Plan Cost Share Program through the Lake of the Woods Comprehensive Watershed Management Plan.
The primary goal of this cost share program is to encourage participants to actively manage their forested lands for water quality benefits. The secondary goal is to increase land protection efforts in the watershed by supporting enrollment in the Sustainable Forest Incentives Program.
Eligible applicants must have land within the boundary of the Lake of the Woods watershed and must meet eligibility requirements for plan writing. This program is delivered on a first come, first serve basis. In the instance of requests exceeding available funds, application will be scored and ranked using a scoresheet.
Cost share will cover up to $300 + $6.50 per planned acre up to 320 acres, with payment not to exceed 100% of the total plan cost.
For questions about the program, call 218/634-1842 x4.
To participate, fill out an application and submit it to Lake of the Woods SWCD, PO Box 217, Baudette, MN 56623. To submit in-person, go to the SWCD office located at 119 1st Ave NW, Baudette.
