Arizona Forest Action Plan
Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management worked closely with partner organizations and stakeholder groups to develop the 2010 Arizona Forest Resource and Assessment. The Assessment and Strategy addresses national private forest conservation priorities; is a useful tool to a wide range of individuals, agencies and organizations; and provides the basis of future work in Arizona to address our forest resource issues.
