Since forming the Minnesota Counties Sustainable Forest Cooperative in 2005, forestland managed by Beltrami, Carlton, Crow Wing and Koochiching Counties in Northern Minnesota have been dually certified. The Cooperative was first certified to Sustainable Forest Initiative® 2010-2014 Standard in 2007 and subsequently to Forest Stewardship Council® Standards in 2008.  Collectively enrolled are 610,000 acres of forestland managed for habitat, fiber, recreation, water, air and visual qualities.   Annually, the Cooperative  successfully demonstrates sustainable management of  the forestland against these international criteria and against those criteria set by the Minnesota Forest Resources Council - Forest Management Guidelines.  The Cooperative has developed a framework of procedures by which the Cooperative manages these county lands.  These procedures address legal, social and environmental concerns.  Annually each county reviews its activities and operators, and based on the review, the Cooperative adjusts the program to meet the measures of dual certification.  These reports, in addition to the Annual Audits, are posted to the public on this website.
