Discuss how to prepare a forest operation prescription and examine what are the costs and recovery from an operation. How contracts are established and working with a logging contractor are also on the agenda. Additional topics cover the Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program and the protection of wildlife, water quality and species diversity within your woodlot.
