Forest Management Plans and Federal Cost Share

Forest Management Plans and Federal Cost-Share/Stimulus Programs (12/14/09)

If you have not obtained a forest management plan for your timberland, here’s one more reason to get one.  Cost-share programs use a prioritization formula; and, a management plan will provide a landowner more points in the formula and a greater likelihood of receiving the funds.

Cost-share funds are available for many forestry practices such as fireline establishment, burning, planting, site preparation, vegetation control, and others.  Cost-share funds, potentially, could more than offset the cost of the management plan.
