I gave this as a gift. It looked an interesting book for someone who had just bought a small copse.

Hire a forester 19 Jan. 2013
By joe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book does not give much detail for the small woodlot owner. Over and over again it gives the same advice: Hire a forester. If you have a woodlot of 40 acres or more and have never thought about what you want to do with it, then this book will be of some help. It is NOT for the person who wants to really "manage"their small woodlot for wildlife, recreation or pleasure. It MAY be helpful to someone who wants to sell their woods. It does not give much specific information.
To me the most irritating aspect of the book was the constant mantra of: Hire a forester. OK. Not bad advice, but you don't really need a book to tell you that.
There is little information on SPECIFIC techniques for improving a small wood lot. I was very disappointed.

Highly Recommended 21 Jan. 2012
By Carl PW - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
We have owned, enjoyed and managed a woodlot in upstate New York for over thirty years. Managing timber for the long term while improving forest health and productivity has also been a good investment. This book explains how this can be accomplished with sustainable forest management and includes case histories.

Unfortunately, many landowners don't fully appreciate the value of sustainable forestry, and by the time they get it figured out the property changes hands to a brand new owner. Consequently, a high percentage of woodlots go through cycles of benign neglect, followed by selling the most valuable trees, then more benign neglect. Most privately owned woodlots have been degraded in this way.

Forestry offers a much better way to manage a woodlot. If every landowner followed the advice offered in this book we would have healthier forests, greater biodiversity, a stronger forest products industry, and more economically viable working forests which would slow down forest fragmentation. More forest owners might practice forestry if they were aware of how it can help sustain healthy and productive woodlands. This book does a great job in conveying the positive message of forestry and the importance of management.

Was hoping for more 8 Aug. 2012
By GearGuy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If I'd found this in a bookstore and had a chance to flip through it, I'd have put it back on the shelf. The "Look Inside" feature did a good job of hiding the deficiencies and making it worth a try. Precious little useful information for homeowners here and even that is so basic you can get it off the internet for free. Possibly an okay resource if you own land you intend to harvest for hardwood trees; definitely centered around Wisconsin woodlands. Pretty useless if fire mitigation of western conifer forests is your interest.

Forestry for Sugar Bush Plantations 4 Feb. 2013
By TedK616 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I finished the book about six weeks ago, it was very informative but had I known that the primary focus was on Sugar Bush, I probably would not have bought it. It is very well written and I learned a great deal from it. They give great background on New England forestry along with some valuable history lessons.
There is great info on timber contracts, timber sales and how to pick a forester....real good background information.

Deceptive Title, Devoid of Relevant Content 17 Feb. 2015
By Stephen M Weiss - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Halfway through the book is the passage "Though most of this book is about planning and working with professional foresters and loggers,..." While selling itself as teaching woodland management, it does not do that. It is no more than an infomercial for foresters and government socialist woodlands programs. It studiously avoids giving useful information that an owner would need. It's about like buying a book on nutrition and health that only recommends going to the doctor every month.
