A comprehensive Forest Stewardship Plan is the foundation of a well managed forest.  A stewardship plan can help you integrate management, conservation, and enhancement goals for your forest resources in a manner which meets your individual needs and objectives. A stewardship plan provides a framework from which to examine current resource conditions on your property and develop an organized strategy for management.  A stewardship plan can also serve as a “living document” in which all new information, current and future management activities, and other related data can be archived.

A forest stewardship plan can also help you qualify for FSC® certification, carbon offset programs, reduced tax rates for your land, and government financial assistance programs.

The purpose of this workshop is to provide a format and guidance for organizing, developing, and recording the elements of a Forest Stewardship Plan for your property.


Topics will include:

  • Developing goals & objectives for your forest
  • Mapping forest resources
  • Defining & characterizing forest stands
  • Developing a historic profile
  • Collecting & recording forest inventory data • Resources for developing a plan
  • Developing a forest monitoring plan • Developing an activity schedule
  • Recording forest management activities
  • And more...
