Upper Peninsula (includes contact info)

The Landowner Incentive Program in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan concentrates on creating or maintaining habitat for mesic conifer wildlife.

Potential projects include:

  • Underplanting mesic conifers to enhance forest stands.
  • Scarification to promote forest regeneration.
  • Invasive species management (i.e. removal, herbicide application, etc.)

Ineligible projects include:

Upper Peninsula LIP biologists can provide advice on most projects that are greater than 100 acres and fall within priority areas (see list below). Projects outside the priority areas that provide a direct benefit to a LIP target species within the focus habitats or are greater than 200 acres may be eligible for assistance.

Applying for assistance is easy. Simply complete and submit a Wildlife Habitat Management Assistance Request form. Questions? Contact Bill Scullon, LIP Biologist, at 906-563-9247 or via e-mail at scullonh@michigan.gov.
