The average plan costs $5.50-$6.40 per acre de- pending on the acreages planned, with the landowner paying only 25% of that cost. "Pdl plans are prepared by trained and certified professional forest- ers. '[~e plan vdlt include infor- mation about timber types, sizes and amounts of volume," says Lilly'. "It lists soil characteristics, growth rates, and suggests ways of using the resource to provide for owner pnonties while assur- ing tile forest will stay healthy and grow rapidly." To qualify; a landowner must have at least 10 acres of land to be eligible for the cost-share program. Forest Stewardship is open to private non-industrial landowners. "We want the people of West Virginia to real- ize what an import,ant, renew- able. natural resource we have," says Lilly.
