Management Plans

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 can write your next management plan

Every year NNRG staff  write dozens of ecologically-based forest management plans for small private woodland owners, conservation groups, youth camps, cities, counties, and tribes. Each plan provides a comprehensive evaluation of your forest’s natural resources and a 30-year timeline of detailed management recommendations to protect those resources and meet your goals and objectives. 

To learn more about NNRG’s services, and how a management plan can benefit your forest, please contact Kirk Hanson at 360-316-9317 or  kirk@nnrg.org.
