Native Plant Program

From the boreal forests in the Lake States, to southern hardwood forests and the high alpine ridges of New England, the Eastern Region hosts diverse plant communities. Botanists and Plant Ecologists on each of the national forests in the Eastern Region provide input for land management decisions aimed to conserve biodiversity on national forests. Key resources that support Eastern Region Native Plant Programs are found below.
