Your woodlands are important. They are a valuable resource for your family’s enjoyment and their future, and for the environment. The University of Maryland Extension now participates in the “Call Before You Cut” program. The program provides Maryland woodland owners with free information to ensure that they harvest their timber in the most efficient, cost-effective, and ecologically-sound manner possible.
Resources include tips on how to begin researching your harvest, where to go for expert help, and the program’s partners. Interested woodland owners can obtain by mail an information packet that includes Maryland-specific resources. Landowners will learn about how a professional forester can assist with the harvest, the different types of licensed foresters in Maryland, as well as sources for more information.
