Land Management

The Nebraska Land Trust works to refer landowners to appropriate local and federal resources and experts on issues that are of interest to our landowners. Here we have compiled a list of websites dealing with issues such as forestry, weeds, water, and wildlife and range management. Resources for finding grants and cost-share programs are also included and landowners are encouraged to contact these agencies for more information.

If you have a resource that you recommend, please submit your suggestions to: Nebraska Land Trust, 9200 Andermatt Drive, Suite 7, Lincoln, NE 68526 or email Jacob Alishouse at
