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.
