Forest Action Plan

The Forest Action Plan is a strategic document and assessment for each state’s natural resources. It brings awareness and insight into the state’s forest resources, trends, threats, and opportunities. As such, it provides the opportunity to cultivate long-term strategic goals to manage Wyoming's rural and community forest resources. The Forest Action Plan is not just a federally mandated requirement, rather it is a powerful tool for Wyoming State Forestry Division and collaborating partners to utilize to acquire competitive federally funded grants.

The Wyoming Forest Action Plan was originally completed in 2010 and Wyoming State Forestry Division is in the process of a revision to ensure content is relevant and up-to-date, including the geographic information system data and maps.

Cooperating partners are an integral part of the Forest Action Plan review and updates, providing key insight into content that may need to be improved and communicated in an efficient and effective manner. We appreciated your input and suggestions about the updated the Forest Action Plan. Cooperator meetings were held across the state of Wyoming with local, state, and federal partners during fall 2019 in conjunction with Good Neighbor Authority meetings. The updated Forest Action Plan will be available later in 2020.
