Long-term strategies that address multiple resource issues and engage multiple partners are often the most successful given the complex nature of the problems and opportunities at hand. When combined with targeted actions and concrete goals, we have a true action plan for sustainable forestry in the western United States.
- Western Forest Action Plans identified nearly 2,000 strategies developed by western states and their partners. These strategies can be categorized into common themes:
- Conserve and manage working forest landscapes
- Protect forests from threats and
- Enhance public benefits from trees and forests
Acted upon and promoted by the WFLC and its individual members, these strategies cross boundaries, issues, organizations, and delivery methods.
