Management Plan Tools and Resources

You may wonder: how do the elements  of my plan fit together? What format do I follow?

Your local cooperative extension service or department of forestry can provide you with templates for your management plan. Templates are also available online from several sources, including the American Tree Farm System. offers a unique, interactive set of tools to develop your plan. Through a confidential, password-protected site, you’ll have access to a set of planning resources tailored to your needs and your land—as well as a chance to connect with other woodland owners and get help when you want it.

Once you have a plan, you’ll start to see the benefits for your woods and your peace of mind. But your engagement with your plan won’t stop there.
