CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — The sign-up period for the West Virginia Forest Stewardship Program is underway for all counties.
The program helps landowners with forest management on their land.
Under the program, a landowner hires an approved consulting forester and fills out and submits required paperwork. Once approved, the consulting forester can proceed with work on the stewardship plan.
The landowner sends the statement of intent and invoices for payment. Reimbursement will be made for 75% of the cost of the plan based on a set price of $600 for the plan and $6.50 an acre.
More information is available on the program’s website.
