Choosing a Forestry Contractor

  • As a forest landowner, you might want to consider hiring a forestry contractor or consultant to provide professional guidance to help you manage your forest. Examples of professional forestry services include insect-infested tree removal, creation of a defensible space around structures and development of a management plan for your forested land. Choosing a Forestry Contractor provides some important considerations when selecting a contractor or consultant.

Mastication Operational Guidelines

  • Mastication of forest biomass for wildfire hazard reduction and forest health improvement has expanded dramatically across the state; these guidelines focus on mastication techniques.
