Forest Action Plan

Threats to Priority Landscapes in Nevada

Nevada’s Forest Action Plan lists eleven significant threats to the state’s natural resources and identifies seventeen priority landscapes where the Nevada Division of Forestry (NDF) will focus effort. It also provides a long-term plan for how the NDF will address the identified threats.

There are no identifiable boundaries indicating where a landscape begins and ends, so NDF has designated priority areas as landscapes based on shared issues, threats, or resource values. Any project specific planning will require a more detailed analysis of the actual resource issues and concerns.


Best Management Practices

Nevada’s best management practices (BMPs) program is regulatory. The agencies responsible for BMPs policy development are the Nevada Division of Forestry and the Nevada Conservation Commission.
