Forestry Committee


The mission of the Rusk County Forest is to manage, conserve and protect natural resources on a sustainable basis for present and future generations.  These resources, such as those provided by the County Forest, are the base for addressing the ecological and socioeconomic needs of society.

County Forest resources should be protected from natural catastrophes such as fire, insect and disease outbreaks, and from human threats such as encroachment, over-utilization, environmental degradation and excessive development. While managed for environmental needs including watershed protection, protection and maintenance of biotic diversity, these same resources must also be managed and provide for sociological needs, including the production of raw materials for wood-using industries that provide a wide variety of products fulfilling consumer demands, and provisions for recreational opportunities.


Meeting Schedule:

Forestry committee meets monthly, typically on the third Tuesday of the month at 3:00 pm.
