Forest Action Plan
Advancing the effectiveness of public and private forest stewardship
The Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management Division of Forest Environment developed this Forest Action Plan by building on the previous Rhode Island Forest Resources Management Plan. It established a vision, goals, and policies and provides recommendations focused on the management of tree and forest resources within the state of Rhode Island. This guidance is intended to advance the effectiveness of public and private stewardship of the state’s tree and forest resources towards the twin goals of a healthy, sustainable economy and environment.
