Seedling Drought Relief

See How Minnesota is helping out their local landowners:

Minnesota woodland owners who have seedlings that have been killed by drought may qualify for DNR cost-share funding for a replanting program. The funding is available until June 30. The funding is capped at $10,000 for a program.

Projects typically range between 3 and 20 acres, according to the DNR.

The cost share funding can assist with the following activities, the DNR said:

  • - Preparing a site for planting
  • - Purchasing seedlings
  • - Planting seedlings
  • - Controlling vegetative competition
  • - Protecting seedlings from animal browse
  • - Releasing seedlings from competing vegetation

Interested landowners were urged to contact their Minnesota Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) forester. Regional contact information can be found here: Link
