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).
