Montana private forestland after thinning

The USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) emphasizes voluntary, science-based assistance to help private forest landowners and managers improve their forest resource. NRCS conservationists work with private forest landowners and managers to plan and install forestry practices that can improve growth, reduce risk, and improve forest health while addressing other landowner goals, such as wildlife habitat or livestock grazing considerations.  Some of our forestry conservation resources are listed below.
