Contents of The Trevey

The following are units, Trevey Elements, currently available or under development. They are intended to be used within a large region of similar land owners, typically the mid-Atlantic region of the US. When selected and assembled into a "book" or plan, they may provide each owner comprehensive guidance for land use decisions. In first deliveries to a client, units will probably be selected and combined "manually" into a single document that can be addressed on the Internet. Of course the entire book or any parts can be printed and used in various ways. Later, an automated procedure will be used to produce books (or a CD) having units that are relevant only to a tract of land or region (e.g., no coastal wetland materials for ownerships within high mountains).

A grouping of topics (categories in bold) denies totality of the system, but here grouping and organization is done anyway due to customary and expected patterns in documents. The organization is irrelevant because there are massive linkages within The Trevey that are part of the ecology of the land, the staffs, and the system itself. (Nevertheless, one suggested organization may be useful in some situations.) There is much contained within the system, but it links to much more, all required to attempt to do the enormous task of modern, sophisticated rural and wildland resource management.

Suggestion: To find a file on a topic of interest, do a key-word search using "Search" or "Find" with the Edit button on the top of most screens.

The numbers for each file may change as files are entered, combined, or their location is moved.

There is much to be done. It need not be done over, and over, and over ... probably with high cost and unequal quality. Your suggestions and assistance are requested. Whatever we do in creating The Trevey, doing it together can probably make it and its effects on the land better than if we try to do it alone. If we cannot build it now, maybe someone in the future can do so. Starting, with a design, is not a bad idea.
