Joint Chiefs Landscape Restoration Partnership

Joint Chiefs Landscape Restoration Partnership

The U.S. Forest Service and USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service are working together to improve the health of forests where public forests and grasslands connect to privately owned lands.

Through the Joint Chiefs’ Landscape Restoration Partnership, these two USDA agencies are restoring landscapes, reducing wildfire threats to communities and landowners, protecting water quality and enhancing wildlife habitat.

The partnership began in 2014, and each year the agency selects new three-year projects.
