In March 2011 the Pacific Southwest Region of the US Forest Service released a statement of its Leadership Intent for Ecological Restoration, which laid out the Region's guiding vision and goals for its stewardship of wildland and forests for the next 15-20 years. This plan reflects the Regional leadership's current thinking on how the Leadership Intent will be implemented.
Alliances and Partnerships supporting restoration projects will assist us and secure our Forests for future generations. In building California resiliency, we will need to increase the amount of acres restored from 200,000 to about 500,000 a year. With Partner assistance we can truly manage and protect these invaluable Forest resources.
