Selective Tree Cutting in Progress at
Fremont Road Town Forest
Tree cutting is part of a forest management plan. Forest management is providing a forest the proper care so that it remains healthy and vigorous and provides the products and the amenities the Town of Sandown desires. The Town of Sandown desires to improve: wild life habitat, the health of the forest and town residence usage.
Forest management is not so much a subject or a science as it is a process. Think of it as the development and execution of a plan integrating all of the principles, practices, and techniques necessary to care properly for the forest.
The complete current Forestry Management Plan for the Fremont Road Town Forest is available in the Sandown Public Library and here is the map.
