DNR asks for input on nurseries


MADISON (AP) -- State forestry officials want to hear what you think about their tree nursery program. The agency plans to hold two informational hearings on the program December 7 in Tomahawk and December 9 in Baraboo. Topics will include the program's finances and how best to meet a statutory requirement that the program support itself. DNR nurseries grow and distribute up to 15 million conifer and hardwood seedlings to private landowners and local governments. The DNR currently operates nurseries in Boscobel, Wisconsin Rapids and Hayward.

The meetings will be held from 4 to 6 p.m.:

  • December 7, Tomahawk at the Rodeway Inn, 1738 Comfort Dr.  
  • December 9, Baraboo at the West Square Courthouse Annex, room B-30, 505 Broadway St.  

Comments may also be submitted via an on-line survey that will go live on Dec. 7 through Jan. 7, 2011.

FOR MORE INFORMATION CONTACT: Jim Storandt, DNR nursery superintendent, (715) 424-3702
