According to New York State's Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), 63% of New York State land is forested, and much of that is privately owned.  In Oneida County, many landowners, including farmers, manage forest woodlots for income and other benefits.  Here are some of the best resources for forest management.  (Also see the Agroforestry page on this site for forest farming information.)
