Wisconsin DNR updates Managed Forest Law program

Governor Evers signed the changes into law in April

MADISON, Wis. – Several changes to Wisconsin’s Managed Forest Law that provide increased flexibility or clarity in the law were passed by the legislature and signed into law by Governor Tony Evers in April.

One change clarifies that buildings used exclusively for storage are allowed on MFL land. The act also makes it clear that a 20-acre-minimum addition to a MFL parcel may be comprised of two non-contiguous parcels that abut the existing MFL tract if each piece is at least 10 acres.

Richard Wedepohl of the Wisconsin Alliance of Forest Owners thanked Representative Jeff Mursau of Oconto Falls for taking the initiative regarding passage of the legislation.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources’ statement allowing these and other changes is here:
