MACED’s Forestry Program is pleased to announce the release of the updated Kentucky Forest Landowner’s Handbook which was supported in part by the US Environmental Protection Agency §319 funds through the Kentucky Division of Water. It is a comprehensive guide to sustainable forest management for the landowners in the Appalachian region complete with up to date forestry information, relevant contacts and resources.
The Kentucky Forest Landowner's Handbook is designed to help property-owners better understand their forest and develop a management plan suited to their specific interests, goals and financial requirements. It is suitable for all private forest landowners, whether interested in harvesting wood products, earning income from non-timber forest products (such as herbs and mushrooms), managing for wildlife, recreation or tourism opportunities, or all of the above. This handbook aims to help all private forest landowners make smart decisions about their resources.
