A management plan is critical for effectively and efficiently maintaining any natural resource, including the urban forest. These plans will lay out in detail exactly what the yearly objectives are for the resource and provide a structural framework for determining responsibilities, tasks, and procedures. A good management plan will be tailored to the unique situations of the property or municipality for which it is created.
For municipalities and large properties, clearly defining the roles of different agencies, contractors, groups, and departments will not only facilitate the efficient management of your trees, saving time and money, it will also assist in decreasing the likelihood of any legal difficulties. Organization through a forestry management plan is key to mitigating hazards.
