Forest Management Plan Writing For Tree Farmers

A forest management plan will help you communicate and formalize your goals, objectives, and actions on your forestland. Management plans are designed to engage you with the responsibilities and opportunities of owning forestland. This class will go over the benefits of developing a plan, introduce the numerous resources to assist with plan development, and clarify why plans are important to state and federal natural resource agencies. Come learn about Oregon’s Forest Management Planning System, a suite of guidelines, templates and supporting tools endorsed by all major natural resource agencies and key forest certification programs including the Oregon Tree Farm System. This class is ideal for landowners who do not yet have a forest management plan for their property.
