Landowners often have multiple goals for their land. WLT aims to make sure that each and every landowner can achieve these goals within the context of the conservation easement. As a land trust with a particular interest in the conservation of working woodlands, WLT encourages sustainable forest management and believes that one of the best ways for landowners to meet their forest management goals is to learn as take advantage of the Landowner Resources. Landowners can also benefit from WLT’s professional network of certified forest consultants, estate planners, wildlife managers, and other conservation groups throughout New York to access professionals who will help landowners meet their land stewardship objectives. We hope landowners will utilize WLT as a facilitator to access these professionals who can help landowners in activities such as preparing a woodland management plan or acquiring financial assistance for specific management activities. We encourage landowners to contact WLT’s Easement Stewardship staff with any questions or to request more information.
