Providing Education and Sustainable Forestry Management Services to landowners in the Driftless Region
We Work For You…
Working Together with our Forests:
Focusing our efforts on forest management and education, the Kickapoo Woods Cooperative works with landowners, public and private foresters, loggers, sawmill operators, secondary wood manufacturers, and other resource professionals in the region to create a broad, positive impact on the local forest industry and community.
What We Do
Quality Forestry Services:
Our professional foresters know the area woods, local markets, and what makes sense in our unique forests. We can help you plan for long-term management, design, advertise, and oversee a timber harvest, identify cost- sharing opportunities to enhance the ecological and economic value of your woods, or establish a timber tax basis. Our job is to help you make sense of your options.
Dedicated To Sustainable Forestry:
Sustainable forestry is a practice that incorporates air, water, and soil resources, as well as forest vegetation for comprehensive ecosystem management. It recognizes the recreation and economic benefits, as well as, the intrinsic value of land and nature. We help landowners create and maintain functional forests that will be healthy and resilient into the future.
