New book available: Woodland Stewardship, 2nd Edition

September 3, 2009 at 8:44 am 2 comments

Woodland Stewardship: A Practical Guide for Midwestern Landowners, 2nd Edition was published by the University of Minnesota Extension for use by private woodland owners in the Upper Midwest.

This revised 2nd edition builds on the highly successful first edition in 1993, which was distributed to tens of thousands of landowners throughout the Midwest.  This new book is designed to help family forest landowners identify goals for their woodlands and work with professional foresters to choose management practices that will help meet those goals. The new book provides an overview of the field of forestry and includes new or expanded chapters on:

  • Managing important forest types.
  • Developing nontimber forest products.
  • Managing forests to benefit wildlife.
  • Designing and building recreational trails.
  • Handling the financial considerations of forest ownership.

Decisions by family forest landowners have the potential to affect a woodland for a century or more.  Reading Woodland Stewardship: A Practical Guide for Midwestern Landowners, 2nd Edition can help ensure their decisions are the right ones for the family and the woodland.

You can order the book here.  Volume discounts apply:  1 – 24 copies cost $16 + shipping.  25 – 999 copies: $10 + shipping, and 1,000 or more are only $7 each. Prices exclude shipping.

The University of Minnesota also was recently approved to receive a grant from the U.S. Forest Service, through the Minnesota DNR, to place this book on the Web, create a Web-based shortcourse around its content, and to evaluate the book and shortcourse.  Providing the book in alternative formats will help ensure that its content is available to landowners in a variety of formats that meet their different learning styles.  These other formats will be available in a year, but a printed book will meet the needs of most landowners.
