Forestry incentive programs are of high interest to non-industrial private forest owners. They can involve cost share for things like reforestation or stand improvement, income tax credits, property tax benefits, technical assistance, and regulatory streamlining. These benefits go a lot farther than the timber-oriented programs of the past. Objectives now include things like conservation practices, wildlife habitat plans, and implementation of sustainable forestry pratices. Forestry incentive programs are not just at the federal level, but are also offered by states and private entities. There are a myriad of programs out there and the availability varies by state.
