I have recently signed my Second CSA management plan. The first plan focused on access, thinning, planting, clearing and cleaning. 27 years later, with this new CSA plan I am starting to harvest high quality wood and have been told by harvesters, truckers, CSA inspectors that you can really tell where the work has been done vs. natural untouched regeneration. I could not do this alone. The assistance from FNSWO, the group management plan, and all those involved have allowed us to create a tree farm that I am proud to show off, rather than the high graded, bug damaged woodlot that I had inherited.
