A management Plan will tell you what you have for timber potential on your property and will give you options to manage what you have. If you have a stewardship plan done you can pick the manage objectives you want to address.

We had a stewardship plan done on our place to address timber management and wildlife habitat. County forester did the timber portion and a game and fish private lands biologist did our wildlife recommendations. It was free, but I could have paid a forestry consultant to do the plan as well.

Having the plan helped us qualify for EQIP and CSP cost share programs that reimbursed us for some of the cost for fire lanes, water bars, prescribed burns, and timber injection for timber stand improvement. We did the wildlife recommendations…built 2 water sources, made several wildlife openings. We have seen an increase in wildlife use on our property And our timber looks better too.

We did a lot of the work ourselves…hard work but satisfying. We now only have to keep things maintained. You gotta have a plan, it’s a long term proposition.
