Join the Wisconsin County Forests Association this June as we tour beautiful Rusk County! Learn about county forest and recreation management, what issues are important to Rusk County and more on sustainable forestry in Wisconsin. Our annual summer tour is a great way for county and DNR forest managers, along with many others, to gather and share information on silvicultural practices and treatment methods of Wisconsin’s largest public land base, along with successes, challenges and lessons learned. Tours are also a great way for professional foresters & forest industry personnel to network.
