Project #: 004-20-008 Date Posted: 05/11/2020 Date Closing: 05/26/2020 at 5 PM Location: Alpena County, T29N-R6E Acres: 440 (total ownership) Forest Type: Lowland conifer (cedar), mixed upland maple/pine/oak-aspen Work Requested: This hunt club is looking for a forester to work with them on developing a forest management plan for use in the Qualified Forest Program (QFP) process. Comments: This large property is almost as diverse as are the goals of its membership (goal form provided and filled out). While upland areas do exist, there are extensive stands of lowland conifers with a cedar component. The membership overall is active and are looking for guidance on management that is sustainable while also maintaining quality deer and small game hunting. Many members expressed a disinterest in cutting cedar, but am willing to discuss further. There seems to be consensus that invasive plant management should be done and they are seeking further guidance on this as well.
