Just a few of the benefits of proactive land management for landowners include increased land values, higher forest product yields, investment portfolio diversification, a history of outpacing inflation, and helping reduce the incidence and severity of wildfires.
Properly maintained forestland also improves the environment by enhancing air quality, water quality, and natural wildlife habitats that offer benefits for everyone. As a side benefit, all of these factors combine to provide both additional and improved opportunities for quality outdoor recreation.
The first step toward good property owner stewardship is a written management plan.
