The Maryland Consulting and Industrial Foresters Directory lists licensed professional foresters who offer a wide range of services to woodland property owners. Services include forest stewardship plans, timber stand and wildlife habitat improvement, and much more. The Directory is for reference only and is not an endorsement of any forester listed.
Forest stewardship is the management of forest resources in a way that meets the needs of the current owners, but does not adversely affect use by future generations. A forest stewardship plan is a working guide that allows the landowner to maximize the wildlife, timber, recreation, aesthetic value, and other benefits of owning woodland. A good plan combines the characteristics of the woodlot with the interests and objectives of the owner to produce a set of forest management recommendations.
