about this item
Who owns our forests? We do. That's right, more than 10 million ordinary citizens own more than half of the forestland in America. The vast majority of landowners want to do right by their land, but until now there's been no single resource for maintaining their woodland. Your Backyard Forest is a complete guide to nurturing the land in your care, from soil and water protection to fostering wildlife diversity and keeping the land whole. The book also features tips for the financial considerations that come from land-owning, including how to save money on your taxes or how to make some extra income from responsible timber sales and sustainable farming. Owning a piece of the forest is a rare privilege, and Your Backyard Forest helps you get the most out of the experience.
