NRCS EQIP forestry funding rates as of March 2009

Considering an Environmental Quality Incentive Program application for funding by USDA's NRCS, here's what NRCS offered.

Thinning $150/acre

Pruning $75/acre

Slash disposal (landowner's preferred method) $187.50/acre

Nesting structures (bird houses, bat boxes) $37.50 each

Wildlife habitat management (structures and plantings) $500 one-time payment

Pest management plan (a combination of documentation and field observations) $1,000 one-time payment

NRCS has well-defined standards for each practice available online. There are many other fundable practices for forest, land, fire and waterway care that I have not listed here.
