Twin Sheds Unit Management Plan

This Unit Management Plan (UMP) has been developed to strategically guide the management activities on the State Forests in the Twin Sheds Unit for the next 20 years, with a review scheduled after 10 years. The 5,002 acre Unit is comprised of the Hammond Hill and Yellow Barn State Forests. Covering about 8 square miles, the Forests are located in the Tompkins County towns of Caroline and Dryden. This Unit Management Plan has been named "Twin Sheds" as the State Forests in the Unit lay within two watersheds. The northern part of the Unit flows north into the Greater Lake Ontario basin and the southern portion flows into the Susquehanna River Basin.

The Twin Sheds Unit Management Plan (UMP) is based on a long range vision for the management of Hammond Hill and Yellow Barn State Forests, balancing long-term ecosystem health with current and future demands. This Plan addresses management activities on this unit for the next ten years, though some management recommendations will extend beyond the tenyear period. Factors such as budget constraints, wood product markets and forest health problems may necessitate deviations from the scheduled management activities
