1) Private landowners who contact the Dickinson Conservation District with forestry related questions or visit the website, will be given the option to receive a referral to a qualified resource professional for forestry services. The landowner will fill out a forestry referral form (number acres, forest type, what kind of forestry assistance they are interested in). This form is available in our office and to anyone who visits the website.
2) The Landowner submits the request to the Conservation District.
3) The District will then email the request directly to the consulting foresters who have expressed an interest in being on our referral list. We will also keep a listing of the referral requests on this tab.
4) Resource professionals will express their interest in a particular job to the Conservation District.
5) We will forward all responses to the landowner. The landowner has the ultimate decision to decide which resource professional to work with.
6) There will be follow-up with each landowner to be sure they have received the assistance they need.
If you are a forest professional and would like to be included on our referral list, please complete the Forest Professional Info Sheet and email it to Bryan.Reitter@macd.org or send it to Dickinson Conservation District, 420 N Hooper Street, Kingsford, MI 49802.
We are no longer accepting proposals for the forester RFP.
