NOTICE FOR CLASSIFIED LANDOWNERS: The Classified Forest & Wildlands Annual Report and the Classified Newsletter have been delayed. We are adding an online reporting option. If we have your e-mail address, we will e-mail you in May the newsletter and instructions on how to report using our new online database called INFRMS. Paper copies of the annual report and newsletter will be mailed in late May or early June.
The Classified Forest and Wildlands Program encourages timber production, watershed protection, and wildlife habitat management on private lands in Indiana. Program landowners receive a property tax reduction in return for following a professionally written management plan. In addition to the tax incentive, landowners receive free technical assistance from DNR foresters and wildlife biologists, priority for cost share to offset the cost of doing management, and the ability to "green" certify their forests. The minimum requirement for program enrollment is 10 acres of forest, wetland, shrubland, and/or grassland.
