Hardwood Forestry Fund
The Fund promotes hardwood timber growth, management, education, and environmentally sound uses of renewable forest resources. The Fund supports sustainable forestry by funding selective tree planting, direct seeding, natural regeneration, management, and hardwood research requests. Grants are provided for the planting and management of commercial hardwood species, with preference given to walnut, black cherry, red oak, white oak, and hard maple on public land. The land must be allocated for multiple uses. Examples of planting sites include idle land being converted to forest; sites damaged by wildfire, insect or disease, ice or windstorms; and naturally regenerating sites lacking desired stocking or species composition. There are four grant application deadlines per year. Additional information including a grant application can be found on the Web site.
