Illinois landowners who have a forest management plan approved by and on file with their IL Dept. of Natural Resources (IDNR) District Forester are eligible to receive the lowest available property tax rates AND a free newsletter from the Illinois Forestry Association (IFA). With funding support provided by the Illinois Forestry Development Council, IFA is working with the IDNR Forest Resources Division to keep you informed of program and staffing changes, helpful tips on practice scheduling and plan follow-through, availability of special financial incentives, and other useful information that will assist in extending the property tax benefits that you currently enjoy through the Forestry Development Act (FDA) program.
We pledge not to contact you more than 4 times a year, and your email address will NOT be shared. Please fill in all of the fields below and click submit, in order to grant us permission to send you up to 4 special emails per year, designed especially for FDA program participants. We anticipate sending out the newsletter via email in the Summer and Winter, and reserving the other 2 contact opportunities so that we may pass along information that is relevant and useful to your ongoing participation in the FDA program.
IFA members who remain in good standing will continue to receive the regular quarterly IFA Newsletter and other member benefits in addition to this new offering, which is intended to expand our reach and further our charitable mission as a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
This newsletter will not be available by US Mail. We anticipate that the very first issue will be sent this coming winter. You should receive a confirmation email upon subscribing. Thanks for contributing to healthy and productive forests in Illinois!
