Michigan is home to 20 million acres of forestland, making it one of the ten most forested states. Forty percent of those forests are owned by more than 400,000 individuals and families. Michigan’s forests support more than 125,000 jobs and contribute more than $17 billion to Michigan’s economy annually. Michigan forests are vital in preserving our economy, heritage, and the overall health of the community in which we live. In the 2015 winter edition of Michigan Forest Association’s (MFA) magazine “Michigan Forests” guest columnist and HeadWaters Land Conservancy supporter Mike Mang discusses the use of conservation easements as a long-term approach to caring for Michigan forest land. Mike Mang is a retired DNR forester and MFA member. Mike is a volunteer at HeadWaters Land Conservancy, and serves on our Land Protection Committee and Board of Directors. The Michigan Forest Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to educating its members and the public about the benefits of proper forest management.
