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