Make the Most of Your Woodlands

Whether you own a few acres of woodland or many, A Landowner's Guide to Managing Your Woods will help you become an active and effective steward of your forest. Beginning with an explanation of the natural processes governing forest development, the authors present active steps you can take to guide your woodland toward a state of health and beauty and sustainably produce one of the world's greatest renewable resources -- wood.

The steps of stewardship include:
*Assessing your forest type, soils, terrain, and climate
*Determining what trees and wildlife will do best on your land
*Working with a forester and a logger to create and implement a sustainable, long-term plan
*Developing wildlife habitat and trail systems
*Pruning and thinning trees to improve health and growth rate.

The authors -- a landowner, a logger, and a forester -- all manage their own woodlands using sustainable practices. Their advice and insights will help your forest provide income while remaining healthy, productive, and beautiful for future generations to enjoy.
