COLLECTIVELY, FOREST ACTION PLANS MAKE UP ONE STRATEGIC PLAN FOR AMERICA’S FORESTS.
With the 2008 Farm Bill, Congress tasked the states and territories with assessing the condition of trees and forests within their boundaries, regardless of ownership, and developing strategies to: conserve working forest landscapes, protect forests from harm, and enhance public benefits from trees and forests.
The resulting state Forest Action Plans—completed in 2010, updated in 2015, and comprehensively revised in 2020 by all 59 states and territories—offer practical and comprehensive roadmaps for investing federal, state, local, and private resources where they can be most effective in achieving national conservation goals.
