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.

Here are some resources to help you get started:

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!
