Forest management has been defined as the application of business methods and technical forest principles to the management of a forest property. So how does this apply to me as a forest owner? How do I know if I am doing the right thing?
All that this definition is really saying is that good planning and proper care will help you maintain or enhance the health and diversity of your forest. You can maximize your forest's potential - whether your objectives are wildlife habitat, recreation, aesthetics or income - through good planning and implementing sound management practices. This is what forest management is all about!
