The Best Forestry Video Ever?

This may be the single best forestry video I've ever seen. It conveys the sense of stewardship that most professional foresters share with so many forest landowners, and helps even non-landowners understand that forestry, well-done, is a commitment to the well-being of the land, those who live on it, and even those who just rely on it to be there, generations from now. Share it with your friends.

While this story was produced in Montana, most states have similar programs and resources. In Pennsylvania, here are some great places to get involved.

Good video. I'm disappointed it seems to direct landowners directly to harvest before having developed a Forest Management Plan. Sam Breyfogle from Georgia

Chuck, Great video. Wisconsin has similar programs. I believe that the majority of Wisconsin's timber harvest is from privately owned forest lands.

Hi Chuck. It really was a good video but there are some wonderful resources for landowners not mentioned in the video. Consulting foresters are a great asset for private landowners especially those consultants who have made a commitment to a strong professional code of ethics and continuing education. Landowners need professionals that will represent the landowners needs without conflicts of interest. It's a huge conflict of interest to try to buy a landowners timber and represent the landowners needs and the forests needs at the same time. Just doesn't work. Check out Thanks...Glen
