Creating a Journal

Link to Article

There are many reasons to keep a journal about your woodland property. One important reason is to create a history to share with family members. This history will help them understand your goals and allow them to appreciate the beauty of the place. Make sure to include plenty of photographs of the property and your family enjoying it.

Things to note in your journal:
Spots with personal or historical significance (old homesites, scenic views, mushroom patches, etc)
Wildlife sightings
Wildflowers and shrubs found
Boundary information
Harvest and TSI activities
Invasive plants found, location, control activities
Past field and educational tours and visitors
Recreational events
Future goals and timelines
