Woodland Management Plan
Planning is central to good forest management and a woodland management plan is an invaluable tool.
A woodland management plan is a detailed written document which includes:
- woodland description
- woodland inventory
- landowner's goals and objectives
- schedule of specific activities designed to meet the landowner's management priorities, including where applicable:
- resources required
- estimated costs
- estimated revenues
Landowners may decide to develop a woodland management plan on their own, or may decide to seek assistance from other sources including Forestry Consultants and Woodland Owner Organizations located throughout the province.
A woodland management plan should be reviewed and updated at regular intervals.
NOTE: Woodland management planning has important implications for intergenerational transfer and taxation of woodland property. A management plan and evidence of the forestry expertise of landowners and/or others is of particular importance.
