While most people are thinking about resolutions around exercising and eating better, landowners start the year by thinking about what they are going to accomplish on their land, and how they are going to keep their woods healthy and leave them better than when they got them. What is one of the best ways to make sure that happens? As Paul Simon says, make a new plan, Stan!
Management plans are important tools that landowners can use to keep their woods healthy and achieve their goals for their land. Your plan would be developed just for you and outline your goals and the activities you can do each year. But why do you need really one?
- Fare better at tax time
- Qualify for programs that can help you
- Better understand your woods and what it needs
- Strengthen your family’s connection with the land
So join the thousands of landowners throughout the country who use their management plans to chart a course for a healthy future for their land. And stayed tuned, in honor of the start of 2016, January will be planning month.
