Forestry

There are many benefits to conducting sound forest management.  A forest management plan is written based the goals and desires of the landowner and includes actions to be taken to achieve these. The plan itself is a document that landowners and foresters can refer to for guidance while a property is being managed. The first step in creating a forest management plan to conduct an inventory of the property and to meet with the landowner to discuss their goals and objectives of the property. An inventory describes the soil and timber types, estimates the volume of trees and regeneration present, evaluates wildlife habitat, locates available access, and identifies historic, cultural, and natural resources that need to be protected. In forest management, trees are harvested for a variety of reasons including improving the health of the forest by removing diseased and damaged trees, creating biodiversity by controlling the types of trees that grow on the site, managing forest to attract certain wildlife species and providing a source of income for the landowner.
