Forest Stewardship

A publication from Pennsylvania State University defines forest stewardship as "the wise management and use of our forest resources to ensure their health and productivity for years to come.  Stewardship challenges us to look beyond our immediate personal needs so we can leave a living forest legacy for future generations.  [It also] challenges us first to understand the natural processes that take place in a forest.  Then it challenges us to ensure that when we alter these processes, we do so in a way that continues to enrich the lives of all who depend on forests - wildlife, humans, and generations yet to come."

We have worked closely with our forester and the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to create a plan that will protect the 1,105 forested acres of Governor Dick Park.
