Current Agricultural Use Valuation (CAUV)

Current Agricultural Use Valuation (CAUV)

These plans are developed for private landowners that have ten or more acres of forestland, devoted to commercial forest production (manages for the purpose of harvesting timber). Plans include a forest visit, species growing in the area, the dominant forest class, and recommended forest management practices, and soils map. Most practices include marking the property lines, cutting of grape vines in marketable trees, creating or maintain management trails, fencing livestock out of the woodlot, and the control of invasive species in the woodlot (optional for CAUV requirements). For more detailed forest plan, they are referred to the ODNR Division of Forestry.
