Forests are always changing. Most trees grow larger each year; some die. Seeds spread in many ways, and they become new trees, or food for other creatures. Weather changes across days, seasons, and years. It has always made sense to keep these changes in mind as you consider how to best manage your woods. But climate change complicates this variability, even as it makes managing forests more important.

Thinking about a timber harvest? Depending on the size of the cut and the quality of the trees, you might want to consider hiring a portable sawmill to come turn your logs into usable lumber.

Over ten years ago, sitting on a truck tailgate at a forest management workshop, the wife of a woodland owner said, “you know what? We need our own group, one where women of all skill levels feel comfortable sharing and learning from each other!”

For us the decision to have a conservation easement on our forestland seemed like a no-brainer, but when we started analyzing all the aspects—-what we call all the “what-ifs”—-we knew we needed more time to make a decision. Once we took that time, we got all tangled in those possibilities. It was incredibly difficult to sort through emotions, thoughts, facts, and possibilities.
