Forest Management Plans


CFM ‘s forester has 30 years of experience in writing management plans for management planning or property tax reduction purposes. These plans can help you determine when and how to harvest to maximize revenue from your forest and to reduce property taxes — primarily on 5-20 acre parcels of timberland (if land is currently assessed at highest and best use). Plans address:

· Timber and Wood Products

· Forest Health

· Soils

· Water Quality, Riparian, and Wetland Areas

· Fish and Wildlife Habitat

· Threatened and Endangered Species and Cultural Resources

· Aesthetics and Recreation

Management plans also include maps of the property outlining each distinct forest stand differentiated by age, size, and species composition and provide you with a recommended management timetable to help you know when management activities may be best performed on your forestland.
