This one-day workshop will walk small woodland owners through the steps of developing their own forest management plan.
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
