Forest Stewardship Coached Planning is the flagship course for small landowners put on in partnership by WSU Forestry Extension and the WDNR. Topics covered include silviculture, ecology, harvesting, thinning, wildlife, special forest products, mapping, soils, and much more. Through this series of classes, landowners are “coached” through the process of writing a forest management plan for their property based on their own management objectives. Your management plan is a key to accessing resources for small forest landowners in this area, such as reduced property taxes, cost-share assistance programs, and becoming a certified stewardship forest.
Course fee is $125 ($150 after October 5th) and includes a forest stewardship reference library, aerial photos and maps of your property, forest measurement tools, and an on-site visit with a forester, wildlife biologist, or both! Space is limited to first 20 registrants on first-come, first-served basis.
