The Land Department, located in Room 320, is open to the public

The Douglas County Land Department has three primary responsibilities: Real Property Management; Forest Management; and Woodlands Assistance.
Real Property Management includes the acquisition of properties for County projects, managing and selling surplus and tax foreclosed real property, and administration of County leases.
The Forest Management section is responsible for managing County owned forest lands, and providing forestry advice and services to other county departments. Activities include logging, planting, vegetation management and timber cruising/appraisal.
The Woodlands Assistance Program provides technical forest management advice to private non-industrial woodland owners in Douglas County. The Woodlands Assistance Forester can provide information on cost-share programs, assist landowners in locating seedlings, organize cooperative aerial spray projects as well as other services useful to family forestland owners.
