The Forestry Assistance Program provides an initial professional contact with landowners who are interested in actively managing their forested property. No matter what your goals (recreation, wildlife, timber harvest, ecosystem preservation, etc), the Conservation District Forester can help you better understand, plan, manage, protect, and utilize your forest resources.
The forester also provides the community with outreach and education opportunities.To better assist landowners with the management of their forest resources, the district forester is available to meet with landowners at no cost. During the walkthrough, you will discuss your goals and management history and complete a rapid inventory of your property. If applicable, he can refer you to resource professionals and assistance programs to help you meet your management goals.
