Woodland owners now have an opportunity to join with other landowners in the Living Forest Cooperative. Started in 2000, the Living Forest Cooperative now has over 30 woodland members which hold over 3000 acres of forested land.
The goal of the Coop is to assist landowners in developing sound management plans for their woods, developing a local wood processing site and providing wood to local builders, woodworkers and others interested in using Bayfield flooring or paneling.

Funding for the
Living Forest Cooperative was provided by a grant received by the Bayfield
Regional Conservancy from the Weyerhaeuser Family Foundation and the US Department
of Agriculture via Cooperative Development Services in Madison, WI.
