All St. Louis County offices are open to the public. Currently, the COVID-19 Community Level is high in St. Louis County, which means facemasks are recommended inside St. Louis County buildings (and all indoor public places.)


Managed Forest Lands

The Managed Forest Land classification applies to unplatted real estate that meets the following criteria:

  • Rural in character,
  • Not used for agricultural purposes, and
  • Not improved with a structure (a minor, non-residential structure does not disqualify a property).

The property cannot be enrolled in the Sustainable Forest Incentive Act (SFIA) program.

In addition, the property must have a qualifying forest management plan (forest stewardship plan) in place. The plan must have been developed or updated by a DNR-approved plan writer within the last 10 years.

Managed Forest Land may qualify for a reduced class rate if the property meets all existing requirements. To qualify, a property owner must submit an application to the County Assessor no later than May 1 of the assessment year, for taxes payable the following year.
