County Foresters

Your Vermont County Foresters are available to provide information, technical assistance, and outreach to the people of Vermont about managing and stewarding  forestland. County forester offices are conveniently located around the state. Whether you are interested in timber harvesting, wildlife habitat, outdoor recreation improvements, or all of the above, your County Forester can guide you. Although limited in the amount of field work they can do for any one landowner, they can accompany you on a walk in your woods to help you discover what’s there, discuss your goals and objectives for the forest, and talk about what forest management activities you might consider to meet your goals and objectives.

County Foresters are able to provide you with a listing of natural resource professionals who provide management services. They can update you on state and federal programs including Stewardship and Use Value Appraisal designed to assist you with your management activities. County Foresters also often provide outreach to nonprofit organizations and schools especially outdoor walks and presentations but also including indoor discussions and displays.
