The Western Upper Peninsula Forest Improvement District's First Five Years
Abstract:In 1985, the Western Upper Peninsula Forest Improvement District began operations, serving six counties in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. An evaluation in the fifth year of its forestry program found that the District had increased landowner participation in forest management, upgraded significant aspects of the quality of forest practice, and established a sound administrative system. Costs of service delivery were competitive with other programs in the region. The evaluation identified a number of areas for improvement. Financial self-sufficiency should not be expected in the coming decade. North. J. Appl. For. 8(3):107-111.
