new edition of the kentucky forest landowner’s handbook now available


June 22, 2011


Berea, Ky — The Mountain Association for Community Economic Development (MACED) is pleased to announce the release of the updated Kentucky Forest Landowner’s Handbook which was supported in part by the US Environmental Protection Agency §319 funds through the Kentucky Division of Water. It is a comprehensive guide to sustainable forest management for landowners in Central Appalachia complete with up-to-date forestry information, relevant contacts and a wealth of resources.


The Kentucky Forest Landowner's Handbook helps property owners better understand their forest and develop a management plan suited to their specific interests, goals and financial requirements. It is suitable for all private forest landowners, whether interested in harvesting wood products, earning income from non-timber forest products (such as herbs and mushrooms), managing for wildlife, recreation or tourism opportunities, or all of the above. This handbook aims to help all private forest landowners make smart decisions about their resources.


To request your free copy please contact forestry@maced.org or call 859-986-2373. Visit www.maced.org/foi/landowners-handbook.htm to download the handbook online or visit the Kentucky Forest Landowner’s Handbook website at www.maced.org/Forestry-handbook/index.htm.


MACED is a 35-year-old nonprofit organization that works in eastern Kentucky and Central Appalachia to create economic opportunity, strengthen democracy and support the sustainable use of natural resources.
