TOMAHAWK, Wis. – The Plum Creek Foundation recently awarded a $5,000 grant to the Wisconsin Tree Farm Committee to help current Wisconsin Certified Tree Farm members update their forest management plans so they can maintain their certified status.
According to David J. Czysz, administrator of the Wisconsin Tree Farm Committee, members with management plans will be eligible to apply for the Wisconsin Tree Farm Scholarship Program, which was created to help landowners with out-of-date or sub-standard forest management plans fund a new plan.
“The Wisconsin Tree Farm Committee prides itself on its commitment to stewardship of the land,” said Czysz. “Thanks to help of the Plum Creek Foundation, tree farm landowners can continue to practice good forestry through sustainable management plans.”
