The Wisconsin NRCS works in partnership with other federal, state, local and Tribal governments as well as universities and non-governmental organizations to provide technical assistance on private land forestry issues. The NRCS promotes and informs private forest landowners about forestry practices that can improve growth, reduce risk, and improve forest health. Many of these practices can be cost-shared through Farm Bill programs.

Forest health is a very broad term. Many forests are both healthy and productive. However, a number of different concerns have been identified as major forestry concerns. These include fire and fuels, invasion of non-native and native pests, loss of biodiversity, air pollution, water quality and quantity, and degraded riparian forests.
