Special Sites

Special sites are areas that include ecologically, geologically, or culturally important features. Many owners have a strong attachment to special sites on their property – places they would like to preserve into the future. Some sites are notable for their plants or rock formations, some because of their unique or historical significance, others because they have sentimental value or simply bring back fond memories. Some are recognized by state or federal commissions and agencies.

Landowners should be sure that any special places on their property are identified and included as part of their management plan before undertaking any forest operations.
