Land Management Planning

This land management plan is designed for providing vision and direction for guiding strategic and operational programs of the Land Department. That vision and direction reflects a firm connection with local economic, educational and social programs.

Itasca County is committed to managing county land and forests for the benefit of citizens and providing them with a sustained supply of quality products and services. The Department will apply quality forestland stewardship practices, utilize modern technology and scientific information and partner with other forest organizations to provide citizens with those quality products and services.
