As a woodland owner, you know every decision counts. From the trees you plant to the methods you use to harvest them, your stewardship builds a living legacy.
So when invasive and destructive species threaten your woods, you want a solution that protects your trees now and preserves the health of your forest for the future.
That’s the goal of Integrated Pest Management. IPM is a system of methods and practices that controls pests long-term in an economically and environmentally sound way. It’s also part of the American Forest Foundation’s 2010-2015 Standards of Sustainability for Forest Certification.
