MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The state DNR is providing grants to help replace young trees lost during the Drought of 2012.
Landowners in 49 counties can get funds to re-plant their trees, if they had significant losses from 2008 through last year.
Applicants must have an approved forest stewardship program, own between 10 and 500 acres of forest land, and get less than $10,000 in annual forest grants.
The new grants will cover up to 60 percent of re-planting costs that can verified as being drought-related losses.
