Signup period

For more information regarding signup for this program, please contact your local GFC Forester.

Approved applicants

A GFC forester will visit the sites of approved applicants and develop a tree planting plan for the acreage involved. The plan will quantify acreage and address site preparation and planting specifications. The applicant must agree to follow the plan to be eligible for cost-share reimbursement.

A GFC Forester will visit the site after planting to ensure the reforestation plan is followed. If the plan is not followed or the designated area is not planted, the landowner will be required to correct substandard practices, or the contract will be terminated.
