Are you a homeowner with a blanket of lawn you wish was occupied with natural vegetation and trees? This publication summarizes some of the features of the Woodland Stewardship Education's "The Woods in Your Backyard" program.
This directory is developed by the Woods in Your Backyard Partnership and the University of Maryland Extension's Woodland Stewardship Education program. This directory serves as a way to connect land owners and managers to green industry services providers. The directory has been organized by service and alphabetically. Click or tap on the icons below to access the listings.
Harvesting selected trees from your small woodland can provide firewood, enable chosen trees to thrive, help to control insects and diseases, and more. Small woodlot tree harvesting providers are listed here.
The Woods in Your Backyard Workbook is available for free download as a PDF with fillable fields. It can be used in conjunction with The Woods in Your Backyard guide or on its own to help property owners assess their natural areas and to determine how to reach their land care objectives.
The proceedings and invited papers from this conference were intended as a natural resources handbook for landowners considering enterprise options. Agricultural and natural resources professionals can use the resource to enable them to better serve farm and forest landowners, rural community leaders, and others.
