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
