California law requires periodic assessments and strategic plans be developed to inform policy decisions on the state’s forest and rangeland resources. In addition, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Forest Service State and Private Forestry Redesign Program has provided states with funding and direction to take a focused and systematic approach to evaluate opportunities for state-federal agency partnering for stronger forest management. |
This assessment highlights key issues, resource status and trends and priority landscapes for the subsequent strategy document, which will provide a framework for state and federal programs to support good forest and rangeland stewardship in California.
