Forestry Assistance Referrals

The Forestry Assistance Program works to provide an initial professional contact with landowners who are interested in forest management on their property. Our role is to provide general guidance and information and facilitate referrals to other public and private resource professionals.


Qualified foresters interested in pursuing the project(s) described below should respond to the Montcalm, Kent & Ionia Conservation Districts by email within two weeks of the posting. You may include additional relevant information in your responses pertaining to the project. Forester Mike MacEachron will then forward all emails received to the landowner. Landowners are encouraged to contact all of the consultants who reply in a timely fashion, but the choice remains with the individual landowner. Our office will follow up with landowners to ensure they get the assistance they need.


Please contact us if you would like more information on any project. We may have other information such as notes, maps, or digital photographs.
