The Department’s core function is to administer Tax Forfeited Trust Lands for the benefit of the County, School Districts and Townships in accordance with Statute.

Management of an enterprise fund of this nature requires fiduciary responsibility, innovation, and flexibility to accomplish our core function successfully.

Forest Management

Management techniques such as planned tree removal from the forest, using improved trees, established inventory and land classification systems for analysis to better understand the dynamics of the forest have contributed to the county’s success.

The value of forest products manufactured in Minnesota is increasing.  The demand for wood products is increasing from wood products manufacturers to supply a greater market share of wood products produced in Minnesota.

Acquisition of lands vital to effective management of the tax forfeited land base will play an increasingly important role as large land management organizations liquidate some of their land holdings.
