Forest Selection Guidelines

Forest Selection Guidelines

One of Nature's Lovliest SitesWe seek private landowners who have a strong conservation ethic and who are willing to place a conservation easement that restricts timber harvesting on their property. Forests should be 100 acres or more with a significant number of trees 70 years or older. Adjoining forested lands are important.

Our Forest Elect Program allows for exceptions. Exceptions for size and age are made for sites of outstanding soils, diversity of habitat, proximity to sensitive location, or other special situations. A future time is set for the forest to graduate from this program to become a 500-Year Forest.
