Forest Action Plan
Sustaining Missouri’s Forests
Missouri’s statewide Forest Action Plan represents a new beginning in the way Missourians care for our trees and forests. It evaluates the conditions, trends, and threats facing our forests, and provides a roadmap to sustain them.
Missouri’s trees, woodlands and forests are an incredible resource to behold providing us with clean water and air, high-quality wildlife habitat, diverse outdoor recreational opportunities, and a forest products industry that contributes over $9 billion to Missouri’s economy annually. Ensuring that these benefits are sustained and enhanced for Missourians today and into the future is a priority for the Missouri Department of Conservation.
Best Management Practices
Missouri’s best management practices (BMPs) program is non-regulatory. The agency responsible for BMPs policy development is the Missouri Department of Conservation.
