More about Plum Creek in Wisconsin

We have been a private landowner in Wisconsin since 2001. Our company owns and manages 
land to meet a variety of needs, including growing, harvesting 
and replanting timber resources, as well as providing recreational, conservation and development opportunities.

Sustainable Forestry

We work in partnership with local and state governments to ensure we meet or exceed all forestry rules, regulations and environmental laws.

Our company was the first to have our timberlands third-party certified to meet the Sustainable Forestry Initiative® Standard. 

Commitment to Conservation and Open Access

Since 2002, we have conserved more than 111,000 acres in Wisconsin, including a large conservation easement near the Wolf River and a conservation 
sale in the Chequamegon-Nicolet National Forest. In 2012, we sold a number of parcels of land to the State of Wisconsin and other public and nonprofit entities for use as public recreation sites. Because we are a part of
this community, we understand the recreational value our forests provide. We’re proud that through Wisconsin’s Managed Forest Law program, approximately 100 percent of our land is open for free public access for hunting, fishing, hiking, snowmobiling and more.

Wildlife Habitat

Our company has developed 
a Habitat Conservation Plan (HCP) that provides a long-term management plan on more than 60,000 acres in Wisconsin for the Karner blue butterfly.

We are one of the state’s largest partners maintaining habitat for the butterfly, which was added to the endangered species list in 1992. We have worked with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and 27 other state, federal and private participants to identify and protect the essential food sources and habitat conditions necessary for the survival of this butterfly.

A Community Partner

We support the communities where we live and work. In 2014, the Plum Creek Foundation provided $80,000 in financial support to a variety of nonprofit organizations throughout Wisconsin.
