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) Active Private Sector Referrals: Resource professionals will express their interest in a particular job to the Conservation District and/or FAP Forester.
5) Pending Private Sector Referrals: The FAP Forester will forward all responses to the landowner. The landowner makes the decision which resource professional to work with.
6) Inactive Private Sector Referrals: Landowner has hired a Resource Professional and work is being completed. Follow-ups with each landowner will be done to make sure they have received the assistance they need.
