The Michigan Forestry Assistance Program (FAP) provides technical assistance to private forestland owners. Conservation district foresters work one-on-one with private forestland owners and private sector foresters to promote sustainable management of the private forest resource. Conservation districts provide promotion and outreach to private forestland owners in their service area by conducting workshops, hosting field days, and writing articles for local publications. The conservation district foresters provide site visits, referrals for silvicultural practices, and provide assistance with QFP applications. Landowners will find materials here regarding FAP and find resource professionals that service their county.
