Should you want to pursue forest management after meeting with Greg (see previous webpage):
Your profile will be confidentially posted to our website for a two-week period during which forest resource professionals will have the opportunity to express interest in your project. Please note that no personal information will be available on the website; only a basic profile and general location of your land will be made available in order to help consultants effectively express interest in your project.
Greg will compile a list of forest resource professionals who have expressed interest in helping you with your specific project and will provide further guidance on working with foresters.
It is up to the landowner to call the forest resource professionals and choose with whom they would like to work.
Greg will be available to follow up with you, answer any future questions, and help you with future forestry and non-game wildlife-related issues.
The Referral Process - For The Forest Resource Professional
Project #: 006-21-020 Date Posted: 7/20/21 Date Closing: 8/3/21 5 PM ET Location: Montmorency County, T29N-R1E Acres:35 (total ownership)Forest Type: Upland mixed (oak-dominated overstory) Work Requested: The landowner of this recreational property wants a timber sale conducted in the near term to address oak wilt concerns, while at the same time looking into opportunities for cost-share for a management plan through NRCS EQUIP or the Forest Stewardship Program. The forest management plan will be used for Qualified Forest Program purposes. The property is dominated by xeric sands on which historically existed a fire-dependent, mixed-pine forest. Harvesting has not occurred within the last 50 years or more. The current stand is dominated by black, red, and white oak in the overstory, with scattered red and eastern white pine. The sapling layer is mostly red maple, with scattered red and eastern white pine. Quality and quantity of timber is good. Access to the property and within the property is excellent. Discussions have ensued regarding group selection and/or variable retention harvesting, with the removal of most of the red and black oak, retention of white oak, red pine, and eastern white pine, and a desire to increase conifer component over time (perhaps be planting after the timber sale). A Forest Stewardship Program goals form has been completed and could be used to facilitate future discussions.
Project #: 006-21-019 Date Posted: 7/19/21 Date Closing: 8/2/21 5 PM ET Location: Montmorency County, T31N-R3E Acres:36 (total ownership)Forest Type: Upland mixed Work Requested: The landowner of this recreational property is primarily interested in having a timber sale conducted during the winter months. Access to the property is excellent. Access within the property is fair. Soils are sands and mucks. Harvesting has not occurred within the last 50 years or more. Current stands are dominated by balsam fir, aspen, red maple, and eastern white pine. Discussions have ensued regarding patch clearcuts and/or variable retention harvesting. Adjacent harvests on public lands are not what the landowner is looking for, but access through these lands may be necessary to facilitate the timber sale. A Forest Stewardship Program goals form has been completed and could be used to facilitate future discussions.
