What We Do
We solve complex forest resources issues by convening experts and establishing partnerships.
Outstanding and diverse forests have always been a part of life in Minnesota, but maintaining their long-term health for future generations is no easy task. Climate change, forest fragmentation, water quality issues, and the spread of invasive species are just a few ways the health and quality of Minnesota's forests are threatened every day.
Issues can be complex, and that often means the solutions can be complicated as well. The council addresses these problems from the bottom up and the top down—working with a wide range of stakeholders and experts from across the state. With our partners, we conduct research, publish reports, and develop recommendations which promote the sustainable management of Minnesota's forests for the benefit of the entire state.
