Since the passage of the Endangered Species Act in 1973, private landowners have had to be more thoughtful about what species might be living on their property and how certain activities can affect them.

Your woods offer a variety of benefits including recreation, wildlife, family legacy, scenery, income, and more. Regardless of what value your woods provide, you likely love your woods and want to keep them healthy into the future.
