Stewardship Contracting

Stewardship contracting allows the Forest Service to work with contractors to accomplish a variety of on-the-ground projects. Since 2004 several stewardship contracts have been completed across the Hiawatha National Forest. 

We are seeking contractors interested in stewardship work on the Hiawatha NF.  Potential work may include general construction, timber stand improvements, road and trail work, wildlife habitat enhancement, reforestation activities, fuels treatments, and non-native invasive plant control.  If you are interested, please complete our vendor information request.

For more information, or to submit a vendor information request, please contact Loren Everest, Hiawatha National Forest Stewardship Coordinator, Forest Supervisors Office, 820 Rains Drive, Gladstone, MI 49837, 906-428-5844, leverest@fs.fed.us.
