About Us:

Living in the woods is the dream for many of us, but it comes with a unique set of challenges that not all homeowners are aware of. Homes and businesses surrounded by trees have greater risk of loss from wildfire and windstorms if the forest around them is unhealthy. Also, the plants and animals that are part of the dream for landowners suffer from habitat loss from the encroachment of invasive species and the overgrowth of aspen and balsam without regular and informed management practices.
Growing Futures, LLC is a forestry maintenance and education business serving Ely, MN and surrounding communities. Growing Futures was formed in response to the growing demand for fire mitigation, threat posed by buckthorn and the need for entry level natural resource jobs that allow young people to stay in the Range while building their careers. We serve as an affordable contractor for private owner’s land management needs and inform the community about the importance of our natural resources and how to preserve them. Our mission is to aid Northern Minnesota in protecting forest health by providing diverse, consistent and affordable land management practices, working with the goal improve the health of the Superior National Forest through natural resource field work, and education in order to make Northern Minnesota a community, where the economy, environmental sustainability and human health positively influence each other.
