ODNR adds online resource to help owners of small woodlots

COLUMBUS – Approximately 200,000 Ohioans own a small woodlot (1-10 acres), and the number of owners is growing. The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) has added an online resource to assist this growing group of small-woodlot owners.

“Small woodlots are important because they support wildlife, clean the air and water, and provide renewable forest products,” said Robert Boyles, state forester and chief of the ODNR Division of Forestry. “We hope small-woodlot owners will find the information on our website useful in their efforts to care for their woods, which will benefit all Ohioans.”

This new online resource provides information on planting trees, enhancing woodland wildlife habitat, controlling non-native woodland insect pests and diseases, maintaining native woodland plants, protecting water quality, thinning woodlots, growing specialty forest products and providing woodland retreats.

The new small woodlot assistance webpages can be found online at: http://ohiodnr.com/forestry/SmallWoodlots/tabid/5589/Default.aspx.

The ODNR Division of Forestry works to promote the wise use and sustainable management of Ohio’s public and private woodlands. To learn more about Ohio’s woodlands, forest health and tree care, visit ohiodnr.com/forestry.
