Informational Publications


The following resource sheets are information on various aspects of the life of a forest that a landowner may need to understand the management of their lands. They generally describe various stages of the growth of a forest stand from: the selection of a tree species, site preparation, planting, growing the trees over time, thinning, pest management problems that might occur, wildlife considerations, and harvesting. This information does not replace the need for advice from a professional. If you need professional assistance please contact the Alabama Forestry Commission office located in your county.
