An invaluable step to implementing a successful forest management program is to seek professional advice and technical assistance. Most Illinois landowners and others interested in becoming better forest stewards are not in the position, nor have the time, to understand all the details of forest management. Many will likely require the expertise and guidance of a professional forester or other qualified natural resources specialist. A trained forester understands what is possible, what is manageable, and what is realistic given time, money, and other resource constraints, and will assist you in organizing and transforming your goals and objectives into a formal management plan. Contact a professional consulting forester or your local DNR forester today for technical assistance.
