Forest Action Plan

Since 1948, New Hampshire's forests have been inventoried and analyzed five times. The most recent work was completed in 1997 under the guidance of the State Forest Advisory Board and in conjunction with the USDA Forest Service.

Based on this inventory work a statewide forest resources plan is prepared about every 10 years and submitted to the Governor and Legislature. The most recent plan, completed in 2010, was developed in response to the 2008 Farm Bill which required states to develop a statewide assessment and strategies for forest resources (now refered to as the Forest Action Plan) in order to be eligible to receive cooperative forestry assistance funds. This plan was developed with guidance from the New Hampshire Forest Advisory board and input from over 150 stakeholder groups and private individuals.
