Upper Michigan Land Management foresters are State of Michigan licensed Commercial Pesticide Applicators.  This allows our foresters to legally apply certain herbicides on lands scheduled for tree plantings and reforestation projects.  Upper Michigan Land Management is licensed under Category 2.

Year after year, thousands of acres of abandoned agricultural lands are reforested into timber production which provides tree planting jobs in the short-term and timber management jobs in the long-term.  Trees improve environmental conditions through the removal of carbon dioxide or carbon sequestration while adding oxygen to our atmosphere.
