Real Estate Management


Currently, real estate revenue is generated from transactions such as lease contracts, easements, utility licenses, forest campground fees, and periodic auctions of trust lands. School trust lands are also exchanged to consolidate ownership, improve management, or to take advantage of potential future revenue. The DNR Divisions of Forestry and Lands & Minerals work together in drafting, negotiating, and administering these processes.

From 2013-2022, approximately five percent of annual gross revenue from school trust lands came from real estate activities.
