Northeastern Area State and Private Forestry
Strategic Plan FY 2008 to FY 2012
The Northeastern Area strategic plan helps us focus on the great threats affecting the Nation’s forests today—fire hazards, invasive species, forest fragmentation, and effects of unmanaged recreation. Since a majority of the Nation’s forests, including over 90 percent of the forests within the 20 Northeastern and Midwestern States, are in State and private ownership, the success of our cooperative efforts is important and significant! Our strategic plan recognizes the challenges of today and prepares us for the challenges ahead. We will use this plan and the focus it provides to anticipate both opportunities and challenges facing forest resources, forest landowners, our partners, and our own organization. We’ll learn from the past, as we focus on the future.
NA’s Featured Projects highlight efforts we’re making to monitor, manage, protect, and better use America’s forests. They give examples of how NA provides cutting edge technical and financial assistance to State and other partners to help manage nonfederal forests.
