Whether you own a few acres of woodland or many, A Landowner’s Guide to Managing Your Woods will help you become an active and effective steward of your forest. Beginning with an explanation of the natural processes governing forest development, the authors present active steps you can take to guide your woodland toward a state of health and beauty and sustainably produce one of the world’s greatest renewable resources — wood. The steps of stewardship include: * Assessing your forest type, soils, terrain, and climate * Determining what trees and wildlife will do best on your land * Working with a forester and a logger to create and implement a sustainable, long-term plan * Developing wildlife habitat and trail systems * Pruning and thinning trees to improve health and growth rate. The authors — a landowner, a logger, and a forester — all manage their own woodlands using sustainable practices. Their advice and insights will help your forest provide income while remaining healthy, productive, and beautiful for future generations to enjoy.

COUNTRYSIDE is the truly original country magazine (established 1917) serving that branch of the Voluntary Simplicity movement seeking greater self-reliance (homesteading), with emphasis on home food production. This includes gardening, small-scale livestock, cooking, food preservation, resource conservation, recycling, frugality, money management, alternative energy, old-time skills, home business, and
much more.
COUNTRYSIDE features reader-written personal experiences and photos straight out of family albums, making each issue just like a long letter from friends who are living the good life, beyond the sidewalks.



  Toil, feel, think, hope; you will be sure to dream enough before you die without arranging for it.
