The forests of the Southern US are an invaluable resource. Forest stewardship in this region has been solid, but there is room for improvement. Forest product companies look to woodland owners to supply them with wood and fiber produced to the highest standards. In an ever-evolving market, adapting the best possible forest management practices gives landowners a competitive edge.
Through the AWA, landowners can get the tools and training they need to strengthen their market connections and thrive in the future. The AWA provides landowners with:
On-the-ground technical support for improving soil and water quality
Assistance in developing forest management plans
Access to consulting foresters, procurement foresters or state foresters who can help assess your needs
The AWA is a landowner’s partner in better forest management for the future.
Contact us to find out how we can help at no cost to the landowner.
More information to come.
