    Forests and Timber Harvests. Most owners who have five or more contiguous acres of forest land within the state of Maryland may be eligible to participate in the Forest Conservation and Management Program with the Maryland Department of Natural Resources. This program often provides significant savings in property taxes. The lab is also playing a crucial role in restoring longleaf pine forests, which once occupied over 90 million acres from Virginia, south to Florida, and west to Texas. Agriculture, industrial timber plantations, and fire suppression have reduced these fire adapted ecosystems to less than three million acres.

    Your woods can be productive for generations when managed correctly, and still bring you an income. A formerly mismanaged forest can be brought back to a more natural existence supporting a myriad of wildlife, vegetation and quality timber. The Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program (WHIP) is a voluntary program that provides financial and technical assistance to help participants protect, restore, develop, or enhance habitat for upland wildlife, wetland wildlife, threatened and endangered species, fisheries, and other types of wildlife on private agricultural land, non-industrial.

    Forest landscape restoration (FLR) is the ongoing process of regaining ecological functionality and enhancing human well-being across deforested or degraded forest landscapes. FLR is more than just planting trees – it is restoring a whole landscape to meet present and future needs and to offer multiple benefits and land uses over time. The accelerated clearing and logging of forests in northeastern and southwestern China led to emissions of carbon that reached peaks of – PgC yr−1 from the late s through the s.

Forest restoration is defined as “actions to re-instate ecological processes, which accelerate recovery of forest structure, ecological functioning and biodiversity levels towards those typical of climax forest” i.e. the end-stage of natural forest forests are relatively stable ecosystems that have developed the maximum biomass, structural complexity and species diversity.

REMEMBER: Guidelines help with how to manage, not whether to manage. These guidelines focus on how to protect the functions and values of forest resources during forest management activities.

They do not provide advice on whether to manage or which management activities are needed. The Maryland Forest Service, relying on two methods, estimates at least million acres remain forested — above the 40 percent tree canopy goal set in a law that mandated no net loss.

The goal of the Forests for the Bay is to educate landowners about the connection between healthy woodlands & clean water and that the healthiest woods are managed. The number of private woodland owners in this region is increasing rapidly as forestry budgets to address their needs are shrinking.

Forestry for the Bay is intended to help fill that service gap.
