Forest Stewardship Workshop for Forest Landowners

“Empowerment of Forest Owners through Personal Involvement”

Forest Stewardship workshops are developed and offered through MSU Extension Forestry.

Montana has developed and tested a unique approach to teaching forest stewardship to non-industrial private forest owners.

The Key is empowering forest landowners with personal knowledge of their property and the basic principles of forestry and environmental management.

The Technique involves training owners to discover for themselves the intricate web of natural resources on their land.

The Process teaches landowners how to develop their own long-range Stewardship Plan.

The Result is pride in a personally developed Stewardship Plan and the motivation to implement stewardship principles.


Key Elements of the workshop include skills development. Participants learn to:

  • Inventory their property resources.

  • Set goals and priorities for their lands.

  • Analyze resource trade-offs and understand environmental consequences of stewardship decisions.

  • Develop their own Stewardship Plan.


Classes are taught by a team of natural resource professionals.
