Forest Action Plan
A vision for the future
The forests on Guam have been impacted by typhoons, drought, wildfires, and invasions of introduced insects, plants, and ungulate species. These impacts have greatly altered natural communities, and now threaten biodiversity and watershed functions. In addition, Guam is bracing for an unprecedented increase in population associated with the expansion of the U.S. Marine Corps, Navy, Army, and Air Force on the island. The Forest Action Plan recommends strategies for protecting forests, restoring forest ecosystems, and reducing pollution to critical reef systems.
