Forest Stewardship

Private Landowner Assistance


The Forest Stewardship Program is a cooperative federal and state service that assists private landowners with forest planning and on-the-ground work. The intent is to assist the active management of forest resources, to keep lands productive for present and future owners, and increase economic and environmental benefits. In Alaska, landowners with 7 or more acres of land capable of growing trees are eligible. Some homeowners with wildfire hazard and 2 or more acres may also be eligible. Alaska Native Corporations are eligible.
