Forest Management

Overview
The Upton Conservation Commission and Land Stewardship Committee currently manage approximately 800 acres of land. These properties include six conservation areas, Stefans Farm, and Goss Pond. The purpose of the Forest Management Policy is to establish general goals and guidance for management of forests on these lands. The policy and guidelines are intended to promote ecologically, economically, and socially responsible land stewardship and forestry. This information will guide the Land Stewardship Committee and professional foresters tasked with developing land stewardship and forest management plans for the properties.
