Forest Stewardship Coached Planning - 2016 Preston
Your Land. Your Trees. Your Goals.

Natural beauty, wildlife, ecosystem health, harvest income, family ties, privacy, and peace and quiet are some of the many reasons people value their forestland. Whatever your values are, this comprehensive university-based forestry class will help you get the most out of the land you love. Whether you have just a few wooded acres or a larger forest tract, if you have trees on your property, this class is for you.

Topics covered include:

How do you know if your trees are healthy? What should you do if they aren't?
Are characteristics of your property attracting or repelling the wildlife you enjoy? What can you do if wildlife cause damage?
Are there certain trees you should always keep or remove? How do you cut trees without damaging your land?
What types of trees do you have? Does your forest look like a "mess"?
How do you know if your trees need to be thinned, and how do you go about it?
How do you identify and mitigate fire risks?
Are invasive and noxious weeds taking over your underbrush? What are the risks and what can you do about it?
What kind of soil do you have and how does that affect what grows?


Save money, too!

As part of this class we will "coach" you in the writing of your own simple forestry plan that may qualify you for property tax reductions or conservation cost-share grants.
