Forest Stewardship

Forest Stewardship Plans

As stewards of our forests, there are two documents to be particularly familiar with - a Forest Management Plan (also referred to as a Forest Stewardship Plan) and a Forest Cutting Plan.  Both Plans are prepared by Massachusetts-licensed Consulting Foresters and both are subject to the review and approval of the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation.  

Stewardship Plans detail a 10-year forest management plan based on landowner goals.  These Plans document these goals, as well as overviews of the property, stewardship issues, stand descriptions, and possible management practices.  They also include maps that identify the property, as well as the boundaries of the stands described in the Plan.  Stewardship Plans help a landowner take a long-term approach towards managing, enjoying, and caring for the land, while protecting or increasing environmental values of the land.  For information on general stewardship issues, look here.  Below, you'll find links to the Stewardship Plans that are either under review or approved for Haverhill's forests.
