Forest Action Plan
Kansas’ Rural, Community, and Agro-Forests
The Kansas Forest Resource Assessment and Strategy helps focus and leverage limited financial resources to address seven priority issues that threaten or benefit the state’s 4.5 million acres of rural and community forests, shelterbelts and trees. Our Forest Action Plan is organized around strategies to address three issues that threaten Kansas forest health and four forest resource benefits and services. Each strategy identifies priority landscapes where the issue will be addressed and also notes corresponding national objectives, applicable USDA Forest Service State and Private Programs, necessary fiscal resources to address the issues, and performance measures to determine success.
Best Management Practices
Kansas’ best management practices (BMPs) program is non-regulatory. The agency responsible for BMPs policy development are the Kansas Forest Service and other partner agencies.
