Forestland Enhancement Program

Eldon Wohlers (shown standing in his recently thinned pine forest) is quoted as saying "without cost-share assistance, needed fuels treatment thinning could not and would not have been done".


The Wohlers Ranch located in northwest Nebraska and contains over 250 acres of productive ponderosa pine forest. Mr. Wohlers recently completed 102.5 acres of forest improvement through FLEP 3 and is in the process of doing an additional 60 acres. Over the past 100 years timber harvest, fuel treatment thinning, road construction,forest biofuel chipping, and prescribed burning have been used to manage the forest, with forest sustainability priority one. Proactive management and pride are evident with the ranch being recognized as a Nebraska Pioneer Farm, Nebraska Historical Site, 2nd official Tree Farm in Dawes County and recently recognized as a Stewardship Forest by the Nebraska State Forester.
