Forest Stewardship Plans

A forest stewardship plan provides an organized and effective approach
for the long-term protection and use of your forest resources. The plan
also allows you to become aware of the full detail and potential of your
forest. An inventory of the forest’s condition and your stewardship
objectives provide the basis for the recommendations

A plan includes conducting the forest inventory, writing the plan, and
creating detailed forest maps of all significant features (computerized air
photo, soils, and topographic map). Government cost-sharing is available
to pay for up to 75% of the cost of Stewardship plans and can also pay
for part of the cost of many forest stewardship projects (wildlife habitat
improvements, tree thinning, invasive species control).
