The Comprehensive Plan for The Woodlands Forests The Integrated Forestry Management Plan is a comprehensive plan for The Woodlands to protect and conserve our native forest ecosystems. The Woodlands completed the management plan in May of 2003 and revised it in 2013.
The management plan combines forestry, wildlife and natural resources conservation into a plan which will perpetuate the forest for years to come. The Woodlands is known for its woods, so the major emphasis of the plan is to maintain the existing land as a healthy forest as well as promote native species of plants and wildlife.
The developers of this community have paid close attention to preservation of the natural resources. A large majority of the land maintained by The Woodlands is broken up into small strips or acreages that are designated as restricted open space reserves (ROSR) and parks.
