Your woods are constantly changing. Seasons come and go, trees grow and die, weather and timber markets vary, and natural disasters or invasive species can take their toll. And just as your Tree Farm changes, you and your family do too: a major life event, such as a birth, death or illness, can alter your relationship with your woods.
So as winter nears and the year winds down, take time to reflect on what’s happened this year, how your woods were affected, and what you may choose to do differently in the future. This review of your plans and goals doesn’t have to be daunting or difficult. It can mean adding just a few handwritten notes to your plan, and it can start with a simple walk in your woods.
The American Tree Farm System has developed an array of online tools to help our Tree Farmers find the information that you need to do an annual review of your management plan. We will go over some steps you can do to review your plan and how to use our online tools.
Please join us on January 11, 2012 at 2 pm (eastern) for our Review your Management Plan in the New Year webinar.
