JENNINGS — Keith Wynn was recognized by the Florida Forest Service for having a Certified Stewardship Forest. He has put a lot of work into his 257-acre farm located in Hamilton County.
Wynn was presented with a Stewardship Forest sign which he can display on his property. He also received an engraved plaque to commemorate the certification.
The Wynn property is currently being managed in a way that integrates timber management, wildlife habitat, recreation, aesthetics, and soil and water conservation. He has put a lot of time and effort into getting the land into its present condition and continue to improve upon it. The Florida Forest Service would like to commend him for his efforts.
The Forest Stewardship Program recognizes forest landowners who manage their property in a sustainable manner through multiple management objectives. The management plans for these programs are written for the specific management objectives of the private forest landowner at no cost to the landowner. These objectives may include timber management, wildlife management, recreation, aesthetics, grazing, soil and water conservation, and other objectives a landowner may have.
