But where do you start? Don’t worry, it’s simpler than you think! Follow these 3 easy steps for a successful harvest: 

1. Assess Your Forest: 

  • Picture time! Grab your camera and start snapping photos of your woodlands. This helps you understand the overall layout and identify different tree species.  We’re typically looking for trees 14 inches in diameter and larger at chest height. 
  • Plan for the future: Think about your long-term vision for your land. Do you want to encourage certain species to grow? Create openings for new growth? Foster animal habitat?
