A landowners Land Management Plan
is a 10 year plan that details what is
on the land owners property, the
characteristics of the land, and
how to use and manage it. You will
learn everything from what types of
trees and grasses are on your land and
what types of soils they grow in, to the
types of animal species that may be present.
A series of aerial and topographic maps
made by Long Forestry are also included. Then, based on
your goals for your
natural lands, the Management Plan
exactly how to achieve them.
These prescriptions could be conducting
prescribed burn, a thinning using
chainsaws, evasive or exotic species
removal, under-replanting, a sustainable
harvest, or even no action at all.
An important part of the management
plan is the Forest Inventory. This
inventory involves collecting the data
in the field to write the plan.
Tree measurements, invasive plants,
topography, and slope are just some of
the types of data we use when writing a
management plan. To learn more

Soil surveys are also important when
making management decisions. A
soil survey is performed to determine
what types of soils are present on
different parts of the land.
Without knowing the soil type found in
the woodland a forester can not make
accurate and informed management
If you are managing for harvest,
sustainability, wildlife, aesthetic
beauty, and/or ecosystem restoration, Long
Forestry will provide the knowledge and
skills to get you there.
