Forest Stewardship is critical to the health of Maryland’s environment and the Chesapeake Bay Watershed. Healthy forests are the result of deliberate maintenance and management, which costs money to accomplish.

Demand for wood material products not used for construction and manufacturing could serve as an affordable, sustainable, locally accessible, source of energy using advanced clean energy technologies.
