New direction needed at DNR Dick Ellis Candidate for governor Tim Michels indicated in October that if elected he would break up the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) to serve 1) business and 2 ) the hunting and fishing, or sporting community. “It’s not my opinion that the DNR is broken,” Michels said. “It’s what I hear everywhere I go.” Better days.

Brule River State Forest continues sustainable forest management.

http://dnr.wi.gov/news/releases/article/?id=3467

BRULE, Wis. - Sustainable forest management practices on the Brule River State Forest will expand to account for the acquisition of 6,505 acres to the forest, under a master plan amendment approved today by the state Natural Resources Board.

Management activities including the harvest of timber will continue to reflect the uniqueness of the Brule and include provisions for aesthetics, erosion control, and protection for threatened and endangered species habitat.

The amendment will account for the acquisition of 6,505 acres to the forest since the master plan was approved in 2002. In addition, an updated forest inventory was completed which found that additional forest management practices were needed to meet the plans objectives. The plan objectives focus on habitat needs, recreational use and access, water quality and aesthetics.

The amendment does not change the property's master plan objectives. The approved plan change simply allows management of public lands to occur to meet objectives based on a change in conditions.

The 47,000-acre Brule River State Forest is located in eastern Douglas County in northwestern Wisconsin. The forest contains all 44 miles of the Bois Brule River, one of the best known rivers east of the Mississippi and known for more than 100 years as an exceptional trout stream.

Prior to this amendment, the property's master plan set a harvest limit of 600 acres per year, and this amendment eliminated this provision. The goal is to allow a management level that includes the newly acquired lands and maintains a healthy sustainable forest. Additional information, can be found on by searching the DNR website, dnr.wi.gov for keywords "Brule River" and then clicking on the tab for "management and business."
