This guide has been written for non-foresters. Its intent is to make the practice of forestry understandable, awarding, profitable and fun.

This is a guide for the management of small woodlands in British Columbia for a range of social, economic and environmental values. It will provide you with an overview of the steps involved in the practice of forestry, the types of decisions you will need to make, the kind of work to be done, and where you can get help. It will not tell you everything there is to know about forest management, but it will tell you what you need to know to get started and to take the next steps in managing your woodland.
