Taxes on your Wisconsin Forestland getting too high?forest

Wisconsin’s Managed Forest Law (MFL) is a landowner incentive program that encourages sustainable forestry on private woodlands in Wisconsin. Together with landowner objectives, the law incorporates timber harvesting, wildlife management, water quality and recreation to maintain a healthy and productive forest. Sustainable forest management benefits Wisconsin’s economy, hunting, fishing, wildlife, recreation, soils, waterways, and air quality, and renews our beautiful forests for everyone to enjoy. 

forestTo participate in the MFL program, landowners designate property as “Open” or “Closed” to public access for recreation, and commit to a 25 or 50 year sustainable forest management plan. The plan sets the schedule for specific forestry practices which landowners must complete. In return, MFL participants make a payment in lieu of regular property taxes plus a yield tax on harvested trees. Yield taxes go to the local municipality to help offset the annual property taxes that are deferred while properties are enrolled in the MFL.

Good evening Bob, there is nothing more beautiful then a gorgeous forest.  Growing up our property backed up to the state game lands so you could enjoy miles of mother nature at it's finest.  Many people told us that we lived in God's country,  Hopefully the maintaining of forests continues.  Nice post!
