Burnett County Wisconsin; Forests, Wildlife and Land, Market Report January 2016wildlife

  Burnett County is just up the road from where I grew up and is famous for its Wildlife and Recreational opportunities.

The Forests, Rivers, Lakes and Wildlife of this county make it a hot-spot for people from the Twin Cities (Minneapolis and St Paul) with a short drive from the big city to a rural forest paradise.

  Our clients at Woodland Management Service own some very nice forest land in this county and they are excited by the quality wildlife and forests here.

 Burnett County is home to 370 thousand acres of forest land, as well as thousands of acres of priceless wetlands.

  The largest acreage of forests here include 130 thousand acres of poor to medium quality Oak, which are great for Wildlife habitat. 

The quality of the Oak here is made up for with the top quality Pines that grow in the sandy high water table soils on 60 thousand acres of this county.

Aspen forests are the other important component in this county with around 75 thousand acres of this forest type that is so prized by many wildlife. 

Over all the Forests, Wildlife and Recreation opportunities of this county are exceptional in quality.



Burnett County presently has 70 properties available that are over 20 acres ranging in price from $29,000 to $2,890,000.
