Forest Management

With California’s landscape divided among multiple ownerships, coordinated stewardship is essential. Strengthening wildfire resilience is a shared responsibility of federal, state, and private landowners. The Forest Management Work Group is finding cross-jurisdictional solutions to improve the health of California’s forests and other natural and working lands through the increased use of prescribed fire and restoration projects, strengthened partnerships with and support for private landowners, and especially in rural communities.
