The Forest Stewardship Program encourages and provides support to States to work within priority landscapes and to deliver technical assistance more strategically to address natural resource issues in State Forest Action Plans. Forest stewardship on a landscape scale brings together partners such as public agencies, communities, forest landowners, and others with shared interests in the outcomes. These partners work together to address priority issues that span large blocks of land and priority landscapes. Whereas traditional Forest Stewardship Program delivery focuses on working with individual landowners to achieve their goals, landscape stewardship targets assistance to meet resource management priorities and achieve public benefits while addressing landowner goals across multiple landownerships and communities.
