Shingletown Gap Forest Management

State College Borough Water Authority is currently working on a Forest Management Plan for approximately 300 acres owned by the Authority at Shingletown Gap. The Authority has had the land surveyed to identify the property lines and has hired a Consulting Forester to inventory the property. The consultant will prepare a ten year management plan detailing strategies to improve the forest health. The management plan will inventory the trees and shrubs on the land and the forests state of health. The benefit to having the Forest Management Plan written is to help improve the forest health, wildlife habitat, improve the growth potential of desirable trees and shrubs and also improve the source water protection.
