Term Definition
Management Plan

A written document that records the current status of a wooded property. It commonly describes the number and size of each tree species, the state of trails, and the landowner's goals. It also recommends practices over a length of time (generally 10-15 years) to help the landowner meet their goals. Management plans are typically prepared by a professional consulting forester and may be required for certain government programs, like New York's Forest Tax Law, 480a.

Master Forest Owner

Volunteer woodland owners who have received traning from Cornell University, and then provide free on-site visits to other landowners to share their experiences. Sometimes referred to as "MFOs."
