Healthy Forests Reserve Program

Healthy Forest Reserve Program (HFRP)

The purpose of the Healthy Forests Reserve Program (HFRP) is to assist landowners, on a voluntary basis, in restoring, enhancing and protecting forestland resources on private lands through easements, 30-year contracts and 10-year cost-share agreements.

The objectives of  HRFP are to:

  1. Promote the recovery of endangered and threatened species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA);
     
  2. Improve plant and animal biodiversity; and
     
  3. Enhance carbon sequestration.
