Woodlot Management

​​​​​​​​County Forest staff manage County Forest lands and do not provide private land forestry.  Landowners are encouraged to contact a forestry professional to assist with making forest management decisions. 

Many landowners may be able to get a tax incentive on forested properties through the Managed Forest Tax Incentive Program (MFTIP).
