The management of New York City's surface water supply system entails sustaining a working landscape that balances economic development with water quality conservation. Forestry Extension plays a vital role in this approach, particularly with nonindustrial private forestland owners, by serving as a resource for information and technical assistance, promoting forest stewardship, and encouraging the use of written forest management plans. The article presents findings from a recent survey that suggests there is a relationship between the participation rates in forestry Extension and written forest management plan use among New York City nonindustrial private forestland owners.
