Missouri Managed Woods Update

By Steve Westin| Missouri Department of Conservation

In the Fall 2017 issue of Green Horizons I wrote an article introducing a new Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) program called Missouri Managed Woods (MMW). I would like to provide you with an update on the status of MMW.

The first land was enrolled in the program in late December of 2017. It is located in Pettis County, and covers over 150 acres of wooded lands. Since then, five additional properties covering nearly 1,500 acres have been enrolled. Currently fifteen more ownerships totaling over 3,000 acres are in various stages of the enrollment process.

Recall that the purpose of MMW is to encourage more private forest landowners to get their land under active, long-term, professionally directed management.

Landowners who are actively managing their woods under an approved plan, such as members of the Missouri Tree Farm System, or those who are interested in developing and implementing a plan on their lands, could benefit from this program.
