This listing of internet resources was developed to provide you, the Non-Industrial Private Forest (NIPF) landowner, with a better understanding of the information and resources available on the internet relating to forest stewardship. In browsing the document, you'll hopefully find links to areas you're already interested in, and perhaps also find your interest captured by other, previously unfamiliar, aspects of forest stewardship.
This document is structured as follows:
The selection of sites presented here is not intended to represent everything of possible interest to the NIPF landowner, nor should inclusion be considered an endorsement. This is especially true where the section on income tax and estate planning is concerned (Landowners are advised to seek professional guidance). Rather, it is the compiler's best effort at identifying what a typical NIPF landowner might find of most interest.
While much useful information is available on the web, this is no substitute for a good working relationship with your local service, extension, or consulting forester. Furthermore, the web is a dynamic environment - what is there today may not be there tomorrow, and links that work today may not work tomorrow - and therefore we encourage you to continue to look to your local service, extension, or consulting forester as your primary source of information.
If you are unsure of who your local state forestry contact is, visit the National Association of State Foresters web site at http://www.stateforesters.org/SFlinks.html and click on your state for information on how to contact your state forestry office.
