Working Together

The State and Private Forestry Regional staff assists states, tribes, communities, resource managers and non-industrial private landowners by providing technical and financial assistance to help sustain forests and protect communities from wildland fires. In the Pacific Southwest Region, State and Private Forestry assists landowners in the States of California and Hawaii and the U.S. Affiliated Islands of American Samoa, Federated States of Micronesia, Guam, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, Palau, and the Republic of the Marshall Islands.

State and Private Forestry is the federal leader in providing technical and financial assistance to landowners and resource managers to help sustain the nation's forests and protect communities and the environment from wildland fires.

State and Private Forestry programs bring forest management assistance and expertise to a diversity of landowners, including small woodlot, tribal, state, and federal, through cost-effective, nonregulatory partnerships. The staff plays a key role, along with others within the Forest Service and the Department of the Interior, in implementing the National Fire Plan to manage the mpacts of wildland fires on communities and the environment.
