A Forest Management Plan outlines your family’s vision for your forest, describes the current forest condition, and outlines a plan of action to achieve your management goals. A forest management plan is not just about the trees. It encompasses all the resources on your property – roads, water sources, wildlife habitat, recreational sites, and anything else that is relevant to your family and your goals. A plan can help you keep track of activities, communicate with family members and professionals, and earn green certification for your forest.
