Metro Forest

Aitkin County’s forests bless us with opportunity.  We enjoy them for birdwatching, hunting and simply for their beauty.  Many of us also harvest timber in our woods to improve wildlife habitat and provide income. Considering the length of time it takes to grow trees, harvesting them is something most of us will experience only once in our lives—so it’s important to do it right. 

Are you a landowner who has been approached by a logger who offers to harvest timber in return for money? Think twice and do your homework before proceeding to avoid becoming a victim.
