This property is currently certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), an organization that holds landowners, timber industry entities and others to the gold standard for responsible forest management. There are two forest stands, as described in the management plan. Stand 1 is a maturing softwood stand that was thinned about 6 years ago. Stand 2 was formerly a mature Scots pine plantation that was removed and is now a young, thickly-stocked stand of primarily hardwood saplings.
