Arizona State Forestry provides assistance in Rural and Community-based forestry programs throughout Arizona. The programs are:
Urban and Community Forestry - Has numerous programs and partnerships to help cities, town, and communities manage and enhance their "urban forests."
Stewardship - Helps forested land owners plan and prepare management plans for their property as well as other services.
Legacy - Helps landowners protect their land from development by purchase of a "Conservation Easement."
Forest Health - Provides staff, professional foresters, private landowners, and other stakeholders information, education, technical assistance, and integrated management strategies to prevent insect and disease outbreaks, and achieve healthy forest and woodland stand conditions.
Utilization and Marketing - Helps communities and forest industries establish and enhance their forest based industries to provide rural employment, economic strength, viable local industries.
The Arizona State Forestry Division worked closely with partner organizations and stakeholder groups to develop the 2010 Arizona Forest Resource and Assessment. The Assessment and Strategy addresses national private forest conservation priorities; is a useful tool to a wide range of individuals, agencies and organizations; and provides the basis of future work in Arizona to address our forest resource issues.
