Forest Management

We partnered with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and local experts in 2019 to begin an extensive, multi-year program to revitalize over 300 acres of forest land on the property.

The first step in the process is a thorough inspection of the land in which trees are inventoried and evaluated for health. We chose an expert who has over 40 years of experience in forest management, Bill Williams, to help us with this vital first stage.

After a thorough on site evaluation of the forest, Bill will draft an extensive report detailing the health and nature of the forest - including diagnosing areas of overgrowth, unhealthy or damaged trees, fire danger locations, and any other problematic sites.

Once the report is completed and verified by the USDA and NRCS, we will engage with additional contractors who will carry out the report’s recommendations and help us revitalize our wonderful forest land.

Damaged and dying trees represent significant fire danger.
