How local forestry organizations can address woodlands issues in your community

Is there a forestry issue in your county that needs to be addressed? You don’t have to go it alone. Several state and local agencies can provide professional guidance and education for a group of committed citizens who want to take action regarding a woodlands concern in their community.

The University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service has developed three fact sheets to assist woodland owners in the:

formation

operation and

program planning

for local forestry organizations.

LFOs are independent local organizations comprised of woodland owners, forest industry, local leaders, and anyone else interested in forestry issues. LFOs provide interested individuals an opportunity to increase their knowledge on forest management and respond to local and state forestry issues.
