Our goal is to provide landowners with assistance for all land management activities. SFM manages for forest health, wildlife, recreation, aesthetics, and scenery improvement. Planning is the first step to any project. A management plan is essentially the blue print that is designed specifically for your property. In it are all of the details, dimensions, and guidelines of how to meet your landowner goals and objectives. A good management plan will provide a good description of the lands current state and then outline the details and timeline for completing management activities over a long period of time. A plan should incorporate both long-term ( greater than 25 yrs.) and short-term (less than 25 yrs.) goals.
