CADILLAC, Mich. State officials are hosting an open house in Cadillac to discuss proposals for logging, planting and other forest management activities in the northwestern Lower Peninsula.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources meeting Thursday will focus on the Cadillac management unit, which includes state-owned forestland in Lake, Mason, Missaukee, Osceola and Wexford counties.

It runs from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Carl T. Johnson Hunt and Fish Center.

DNR personnel evaluate one-tenth of the state forest each year. The inventory provides information for foresters and managers of wildlife, fisheries and other resources.

Among factors assessed are age, health, quality and quantity of trees and other vegetation.

Timber management, wildlife and fisheries habitat, minerals, archaeological sites, recreational use, wildfire potential and social concerns are among factors considered.
