Woodlands AssistanceUPM Blandin works with landowners to integrate the preservation of natural habitats with harvesting and reforestation. We help them maximize the benefits from their ownership while providing a lasting legacy for the future. Our recommendations to the private landowner include, Forest Stewardship Plans, Management Prescriptions, and Site Plans (harvest, planting, release and timber stand improvement). Blandin also promotes Minnesota’s Voluntary Site-Level Forest Management Guidelines. The most important aspect of Smart ForestrySM is habitat typing, which is a combination of environmental factors such as soils and ground plants used to identify the best way to mimic nature.
