Changing forests mean changing habitats, either by nature or by management. A consulting forester can help you steward your woodlot for wild life, hunting, building, species management, farming, clearing and sustainable harvests.
A consulting forester will meet with you to determine your goals for your woodlands. Walking the property and assessing via maps will help them inventory species and habitats to provide the best recommendation to meet your needs. At Michigan Forestry Company, initial forest consultations are free and the forester will help you understand the next steps you should take if you are interested in their proposal.
what to ask
During your initial consultation, be sure to ask questions! It is our intention to help landowners fully understand management plans and actions for their woodlands. For example, if you are an avid hunter, be sure to ask how this will impact your hunting season or if harvests will be conducted around the particular season.
