Nice milestone this evening: I completed my Forest Stewardship Plan, the one that I started 6 months ago. Finally prioritized picking it back up again, and it feels good to be at this point. It’s a healthy 26 page report, and I can say that going through the process of creating it was helpful on many levels. It focused my research and made me think about near and long term forest management practices plus how our future building site will integrate into that.

I emailed it to the very helpful DNR forester who assisted me earlier in the year, for his review and signature. If he requests any changes or clarifications then I can make them soon.  But, he saw a prior version and already thought the plan was well on its way back then. Once I get that signature page, it will be a fully completed and official Forest Stewardship Plan!
