Where to Get Advice
A forest management plan is a great place to start for landowners who aren't familiar with growing trees. A written management plan includes a map of the property, a description of your woodlands, and recommendations for how best to achieve your goals in owning the property. Your local South Carolina Forestry Commission forester can advise you on how best to develop your plan. Private forestry consultants are also available to assist you.
To get started in managing your property, contact the South Carolina Forestry Commission at one of our three regional offices. A forester will be glad to assist you. When you call just mention that you want to Grow Some Green!
