The sustainable harvesting of wood products is a significant part of the Forest Society’s purpose for owning and managing conservation land. Careful and sustainable timber harvesting increases the age and size class diversity of our forests. It is also used as a method of meeting other land management goals, including the creation of wildlife habitats, maintenance of biodiversity, promotion of recreational opportunities, and protection of clean water. Our ultimate goal is to keep forests as forests.
