Forest Action Plan

Florida’s Working Forests

Florida’s Statewide Forest Resource Assessment provides an analysis of current forest conditions and trends in the state and defines priority rural and urban forest landscapes. It also provides long-term plans to invest state, federal, and local resources where they can most effectively address concerns and stimulate broad support for working forest activities while engaging multiple partners. The assessment and plan sets the stage for addressing critical issues to positively influence and maximize public benefits from healthy working forests across Florida.

 

Best Management Practices

Florida’s best management practices (BMPs) program is quasi-regulatory. The agency responsible for BMPs policy development is the Florida Forest Service.
