We operate in accordance with these principles by employing scientifically-based practices that are responsive to society’s needs. In addition, our forest management plans fully comply with all state “Best Management Practices” (BMPs) to ensure the protection of soil and water quality. We also utilize land management strategies that have been proven to prevent erosion and runoff, preserve biologically sensitive areas, and protect and enhance wildlife habitat.
Beyond our approach to practicing forestry, we also participate in land conservation initiatives that reflect society’s interest in the environmental, cultural, historical, aesthetic and broadly encompassing economic values of private forests. This often entails working closely with governmental agencies and private conservation groups.
