Forestry Commission foresters will examine forest land and potential forest land at the request of the landowner. A written plan and map will be prepared for the landowner giving forest management recommendations that best meet the owner's needs and objectives, provided that they are compatible with good forest management practices. Multiple use recommendations will be made where applicable.
When conditions warrant, such as a request for a detailed plan on a large tract, the landowner may be advised that it may be in his/her best interest to employ a consulting forester or industry forester. Forestry Commission foresters are normally limited to five man days per landowner per year for basic forest management services. This includes both field and office time for making the woodland examination.
