From those who own forested property already to those who dream of someday having a forest to call their own and everyone in between, this complete guide will teach you everything you need to know. The first comprehensive resource for Pacific Northwest forest stewards, A Forest of Your Own shares details on how to “read” a forest, sustainable management, wildfire risk reduction, climate change adaptation, ways to enhance wildlife habitat and watershed protection, and much more. In this thorough yet accessible how-to, authors Kirk Hanson and Seth Zuckerman explore all aspects of forest management—everything from how to evaluate a piece of land before you buy it through implementing long-term plans and protecting your forests far into the future. Packed with informative tables, instructive illustrations, and inspiring real-life examples, A Forest of Your Own is the essential handbook to the many rewards of ecological forestry.
