Wonder what types of trees are in your woods? Looking to promote wildlife? Interested in financial support to help care for your woods? Ways to reduce your taxes? How to pass on your land to future generations?
My Wisconsin Woods currently works with landowners who own woods in the Driftless Area of Wisconsin.
The Driftless Area, sometimes referred to as the Paleozoic Plateau, is a unique region of the Upper Mississippi River Basin with a landscape that is rich with ecological and economic opportunities. The area was by- passed by the last continental glacier and has differential weathering and erosion that results in a steep, rugged landscape. The land, soils and ecosystems are diverse, and the area is home to hundreds of threatened and endangered state and federal animal and plant species. Many of the high quality rivers and cold water trout streams in the region are recognized on state and national levels for their economic and environmental importance.
