Forest Stewardship

Stewardship is the careful and responsible management of your land. It is the desire to leave the land better than you found it. The more you know about your land, the better. Good stewards of the land consider water quality, aesthetics, fish and wildlife habitat, timber, recreation, soils, wetlands and other unique places, rare plants and unique natural communities, forest protection, and cultural and historical features.

Since 1925 UNH Cooperative Extension has worked in partnership with the Division of Forests and Lands to help citizens and landowners learn about and care for New Hampshire's forests, trees, wildlife and habitats. To learn more visit the UNH Extension website.
