How many acres of woodland do you own or annually manage?

Please describe, with two or three sentences, why you are interested in woodlot ecology and management. Your answer helps us ensure that only those people truly interested in woodlots are added as members.
I have always enjoyed being out in the woods (hiking, skiing, etc.). I am also fascinated by the fact that forests can provide us so many different resources, and if managed properly, are completely renewable. After completing high school, I plan to attend college to study forestry, and hope to eventually help others maintain their own woodlots. I am also intrigued by businesses that make use of forests such as firewood production or maple sugaring.
