Landowners – FSC® & Forestry

Jan 29, 2016

Landowners Forest Certification Program
 
If you are a landowner who is growing trees, you will benefit from a certified forest management program. Using Forest Stewardship Council™ (FSC®) principles and criteria, our forestry management team will help you make the most of your property by extending revenues into the future and preserving the forest’s integrity, maintaining its beauty and preventing harm to any wildlife habitats or streams. Harvesting timber without a management plan can be short sighted and can be financially and environmentally irresponsible. The wrong decisions on the ground can take a lifetime to correct.
 
Why should you manage your forest lands?
 
  • Demonstrate stewardship by improving forest health.
  • Maximize tree growth.
  • Generate consistent economic returns.
  • Secure tax advantages.
  • Improve recreation, habitat and biodiversity.
