Ohio Woodland Stewards Program
Currently 31% of Ohio’s landscape is forested, more than 80% of that land is privately owned.  The private woodland owners are the focus of the majority of the programming of  the Ohio Woodland Stewards Program.

This Program provides:

  • Woodland owners with a variety of practical forestry skills.
  • Knowledge that will assist  woodland owners in making more informed decisions regarding stewardship of their acreage.
  • Classes, workshops, publications and web based information that is relevant to woodland owners.
