Miami River Forest Management provides the following services to both private woodland owners and public land stewards.
Individualized Management Plan
Identify landowner objectives and then develop a plan that meets the owner's vision for the land that will accomplish a combination of income, insect and disease control, forest health, wildlife habitat, soil and water quality maintenance, desired tree species composition, tree stocking control, invasive plant species control, and aesthetics. Ohio landowners can gain huge property tax reductions with our plans meeting requirements for Current Agricultural Use Value (CAUV) & Ohio's Forest Tax Law (OFTL) programs.
Wildlife Habitat Improvement
Determine the wildlife species of interest, and then plan and implement a series of treatments that will favor those species. Examples include: cut openings in the tree canopy to create "edge" or diversity, promote mast-producing tree species, plant annual grains, and develop water sources.
Invasive Species Control
Survey and map locations of invasive species such as bush honeysuckle and multiflora rose, develop a plan to treat them, and pursue funding from government assistance programs.
