Management Plan

A management plan is one of the most important tools to improve the long-term health of your forest. When you develop a plan for your forest, you establish your goals for the property, identify and describe current resources, and develop a timeline and set of strategies for achieving your goals. A forest management plan can also enable you to achieve property tax benefits, pursue forest certification, and access cost-share programs to fund restoration or habitat improvements.

NNRG staff have written over 40 management plans for small private woodland owners, conservation groups, cities, counties, and tribal government. Let us know how we can help you put a plan in place.

To learn more about how a management plan can shape your forest, please contact Kirk Hanson at 360-316-9317 or kirk@nnrg.org.

Our membership program can give you the support, resources, and expertise you need to make your vision a reality in your forest!
