Minnesota Forest Resources Council

The Minnesota Forest Resources Council (MFRC) is comprised of 17 diverse stakeholder representatives who are appointed by the Governor to develop forest resource policies, programs and practices that result in the sustainable management, balanced use, and long-term protection of the state's diverse forest resources.

MFRC's small staff of sustainable forest management, policy, planning, communications, and science professionals advise and assist MFRC's stakeholder representatives in leading Minnesota's forestry sector towards a sustainable future in the era of climate change and under evolving ecological, economic, and social conditions.
