It takes time and experience to deal with the requirements of Forest Service and the various State Agencies and to ensure that your objectives, as owner, are always a priority.
There are incentives for planting - basically grants which cover the cost of planting in many cases and premium payments which provide a tax free reviewable income for up to twenty years. To see details click on Grants or Premiums. The long term pay-off comes from timber sales from well chosen locations, soils and species and well managed forests.
