Funding Opportunities for Forest Landowners


Don’t get thrown off by what you imagine it might cost to put some of these ideas into practice. Many public agencies offer funding to help forest owners pay for stewardship activities and realize their woodland goals. Whether you envision a habitat-rich stand bursting with forage shrubs and large snags; a business plan for timber harvest on your land; or an aesthetic retreat replete with meandering trails, these cost-share programs can help you get there.

The program provides payments to landowners to support new management plans and a host of conservation practices such as fuels reduction, pre-commercial thinning, and replanting.
