Wildlife Management Plans

Wildlife Management Plans

Wildlife management plans are very similar to timber management plans, however their driving force is wildlife instead of timber. While this may decrease the revenue from timber, it may increase the overall revenue of the property. Landowners may choose to manage for both game, and/or non-game wildlife species. These plans may be used to ensure property tax benefits for smaller landowners, and often at a lower tax rate than timber. Acorn may call upon other specialized professionals to assist in the creation of a wildlife plan if the landowner plans on making wildlife a direct source of revenue, such as a hunting retreat. As with timber plans, wildlife plans are written for a ten-year period and should be updated every five years.
