Good stewardship begins with good planning. The Forest Stewardship Program promotes sound stewardship practices through planning, technical advice and financial assistance for eligible landowners. Landowners are often faced with complex natural resource and economic issues when managing their property. Forest Stewardship Plans address natural resource concerns and serve as guiding documents for financial assistance applications and associated regulatory permits. If you’re interested in creating a Stewardship plan, or if you already have one but want more land management advice, our foresters are available to assist.
The Forest Stewardship Program provides funding to state and local agencies, private landowners, land trust organizations, tribes, non-profit organizations and educational institutions for forest stewardship projects.
