How do I know if I need to file a Forest Practices Application / Notification (FPA / N)?
Forest practices that may require a FPA/N include: harvesting timber, salvaging standing and down wood, constructing forest roads, installing and replacing stream crossings on forest roads, and applying forest chemicals with an aircraft. Contact the DNR region office which serves the area where your forest land is located to find out if you need to submit an FPA/N.
If you are converting your forest land to another use you may need an FPA/N. Some counties and cities have full jurisdiction over permits for activities that will convert forest land to other uses. Contact the DNR region, city, or county office which serves the area where your forest land is located to find out if you need to submit an FPA/N to convert your forest land.
