Water

Forests have a great impact on both water quality and quantity.  Likewise, water has a great impact on the health of the forest.  Keeping a close eye on how activities in your woods impact water is an essential part of successful woodland care and management.

 

 

BEST MANAGEMENT PRACTICES (BMPs)

In many states, BMPs are considered voluntary for forest owners. However, the AFF Standard of Sustainability says that to be certified, forest owners must apply BMPs (Standard 4, Performance Measure 4.1). Learn more about BMPs here.
