Forest Management

Forestland owners interested in managing their woodlot for any number of goals (e.g., wildlife habitat, timber harvests, recreational opportunities, or just maintaining a healthy forest) should have a Forest Management Plan (aka, Woodlot Management Plan or Forest Stewardship Plan) to guide them for achieving their objectives.
When management objectives include timber removal that is commercially viable, then landowners can also generate income from the sale of wood products. Typical services in this regard are tree marking and timber sale administration.
