The Forestry Assistance Program is designed to provide an initial professional contact with landowners who are interested in actively managing their forested property. The forester can then help landowners better understand, plan, manage, protect and utilize their forest resources through various avenues of information, education and outreach. All of our services are at no cost to the landowner and provide an excellent initial contact between professionals and landowners. We aim to promote forest resource stewardship on private lands in local communities by introducing landowners to forest management and setting them up to achieve their management goals.
