What Is a Woodland Stewardship Plan?
A woodland stewardship plan typically is a written document that:
- Clearly states why you own your property and your management goals.
- Is tailored to help you meet your goals within the capability of the land.
- Is based on a clear understanding of ecological processes.
- Offers recommendations for sustainable forest management practices.
- Provides a timetable for carrying out the forestry practices needed to reach your objectives.
- Is concise, including information that is relevant and accurate.
- Avoids technical forestry terminology or defines all technical terms.
- Incorporates publications or other attachments to describe forest management practices and inform you about sustainable forest management.
- Explains where you can get help to follow through with the plan.
Creating a woodland stewardship plan is easier than you might think. A forester can do most of this work for you.
