All Montanans are affected by the health of our forests. Engaged landowners are a crucial part of stewarding Montana's forests toward a healthy future. To learn more about forest stewardship educational opportunities, please see the resources listed below:

Restoring Forest Landscapes

  • DNRC Service Foresters are technical experts available statewide to answer questions, provide guidance, and help forest landowners achieve their forest goals.
  • The Montana DNRC supports Montana State University - Forestry Extension to provide forest stewardship planning workshops around the state each year. During these workshops, landowners learn how their forest functions, define long-term stewardship goals and objectives, and create a stewardship plan to help guide their activities.
  • Montana's Forest Practice regulations exist to protect our natural resources for all to enjoy. Best Management Practices provide guidance on how to minimize water pollution from occurring during forest management activities. 
  • Women in the Woods workshops provide female forest landowners the opportunity to learn how to actively manage their forest land to improve forest health. To learn more please connect with the DNRC  Stewardship Specialist.
