Wisconsin Woodlands Magazine

The Wisconsin Woodland Owners Association is celebrating our 40th Year Anniversary in 2019.  This year we have created some special features for Wisconsin Woodlands magazine.  Our Spring 2019 issue featured a current President’s message and our President’s message from 40 years ago.  Our editor, Barbara A. Schmitz is collecting member’s tips to share in our new feature – Lessons from 40 Years.  Share your favorite tip with fellow WWOA members by sending them to Barb .

The award-winning, quarterly Wisconsin Woodlands magazine is published by the Wisconsin Woodland Owners Association (WWOA). Wisconsin Woodlands is a benefit of WWOA membership.  WWOA’s volunteer Publications Committee works with WWOA’s editor, Barbara A. Schmitz, and advertising sales consultant, Stacy Wegner, to create an interesting and educational magazine promoting sustainable forestry on private woodlands in Wisconsin.

Wisconsin Woodlands contains a variety of articles on topics such as sustainable forest management, invasive plants and animals, members sharing their experiences, wildlife topics, legal advice from lawyer Lars Loberg, legislative issues, government programs such as cost sharing and Managed Forest Law, new forest products and markets, WWOA activities, tools to help you efficiently manage your land and save you money including advertisements for the products you need to help you in your woods.

Wisconsin Woodlands is a 44-page publication with a circulation of 2,300 and growing.
