Forest Management Planning:
The best way to manage is to have a plan.  Planning allows landowners the ability to evaluate their management needs based upon the current status of their property and their stated goals and objectives.  Planning also allows the landowner to project the various costs/revenue that will need to be accounted for while managing their property.

FES is able to provide various management plans based upon the landowners goals and objectives.  We work closely with landowners to develop their plan and guide them through the implementation of the prescribed management practices.  Our relationships with local, state, and federal agencies allow us the ability to locate possible avenues for landowners to participate in cost-share programs to offset management costs as well.

A typical management plan may contain the following elements (not all plans are alike and all may have different facets included depending upon the landowners goals/objectives and the property type):

Plan Element Description
General Description Location and general description of the property.
Management Objectives Landowner’s objectives for the property.
Summary of Recommendations Summary of the recommendations found within the plan.
Soils Information Site specific soils data obtained from NRCS.
Stand Descriptions and Recommendations Descriptions of the different vegetative communities and recommendations for management of each.
Financial Benefits of Management Financial implications of your management practices. 
Timetable of Recommended Practices A summary of the management recommendations in a table format.
Maps – Property, Stand, Soil, Topography, etc. Depending upon the landowner’s objectives, a variety of maps to provide assistance in managing the property properly.
