Programs and Practices for Forest Land

NRCS is inviting licensed foresters to become certified Technical Service Providers (TSP) to develop forest management plans.

The 2008 Farm Bill emphasizes the importance of forest land by promoting healthy, sustainable forests and protecting rare ecosystems and rare species habitat. NRCS offers conservation programs to help forest land owners protect and manage their natural resources.

NRCS is now offering technical and financial assistance to implement conservation practices that are part of your forest management plan through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) and the Wildlife Habitat Incentives Program (WHIP).

If you need a forest management plan, funds may be available to help you to develop a plan.
