Have you ever stopped to think that you could design and plant your own forest? Imagine transforming your field or pasture land into a beautiful forest your children, grandchildren, and even great grandchildren could enjoy and explore. Or imagine creating a protected, thriving ecosystem for future generations of PA wildlife. With intentionality in design and purpose, you could begin seeing evidence of your transforming forest in as little as five years. Within 15 to 20 years, your forest may even be ready for an initial harvest. Whether you're looking to combat erosion, restore a woodland, or provide a future investment for your kin, creating a forest is a beautiful way to leave a legacy.
