Resources

 

Owning a forest comes with lots of questions. We’ve pulled together some of our favorite resources for you, and split them up into different sections for different needs and interests. These resources have been gathered over decades of working with forest landowners and hearing the shared questions they have about stewarding their woodlands. You might want to learn about what to look for in the woods and how to monitor its changes. You might want to delve into strategies to improve wildlife habitat and optimize timber value. Whatever your management goals, these resources can help inform your stewardship, deepen your relationship to your woods, and help you translate your vision for your forest into action.
