The Newaygo Conservation District is pleased to announce the Forestry Assistance Program (FAP). Governor Snyder signed this program into law Public Act 42 of 2013 on June 6, 2013. This program was enacted in Newaygo County to assist landowners with their forestry needs. This will include the registration of forest land into the Qualified Forest Program (QFP).
When you make an appointment for a free assessment, your conservation district forester will provide customized information about your property like aerial photographs and soil survey information. During the assessment they will ask questions about your goals, objectives, and previous management history while completing a quick inventory of your land. They will also provide you with information about state and federal assistance programs for private landowners, and help connect you to local professionals who can provide you with the services you need.
