Sauk County Wisconsin, History, Recreation, and Wisconsin's Pioneer Forester

The beautiful sites in this county have attracted people for thousands of years.

From the original residents for whom it is named, to the loggers who floated logs and lumber down the Wisconsin River through the famous Wisconsin Dells. 

Then Aldo Leopold who wrote his Sand County Almanac here.  

People still flock to this area from around the world for the many beautiful sites including the Dells, State Parks, Wildlife Areas, and so much more.

When Aldo Leopold wrote 'A Sand County Almanac' he was sitting on his sandy tree farm along the Wisconsin River in Northeast Sauk County, not much has changed here, with miles of Pines, Oaks and other forests all growing on this beautiful and powerful river.

At the North edge of Sauk County we find the world famous recreation capital of Wisconsin Dells, a place for the kids to play while the adults enjoy the solitude of this woodland paradise.

  Our clients at Woodland Management Service enjoy this area and its many Oaks which are important for timber and producing some fantastic wildlife habitat that attracts plentiful Grouse, Bear, Deer and Turkeys.


 Sauk County is home to nearly 200 thousand acres of forest land. 

  Most of this forest land is Oak and Hickory with 126 thousand acres of Oak forests which provide premium deer and turkey habitat and income for the forest landowners.


  If you are interested in purchasing land in Sauk County or if you already own some and would like to learn more about how to improve this land, give me a call, our Foresters and Wildlife Specialists can help.

Good morning Bob. You describe this county as being beautiful as being beautiful. The truth is, all the different counties that you describe have their own beauty. They are all special.

Bob-Nature is a wonder isn't it? Hard to imagine so much forest land in that area. Looks like a hunter's paradise.
