Bureau of Land Management California Forest and woodlands Resource Management
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Forest and Woodland Resource Management Program manages and conserves 58 million acres of forest and woodland in 12 western States and Alaska. These forests provide a range of ecosystem services including wildlife habitat, hydrologic function, carbon sequestration, and sustainable harvest of forest products valued by society. A primary activity of the program is to maintain and improve the resilience of forest and woodland ecosystems to wildfire, insects, disease, and drought through density management using timber sales, Stewardship agreements, and other agreements. In addition, the program conducts reforestation on lands that have been impacted by high severity disturbances such as wildlife, insect epidemics, and drought to restore forest cover and functioning forest ecosystems.
Funded projects under this program will focus on high priority work such as activities that promote forest and woodland health, sustainable forest management, fire resiliency, biomass utilization for bioenergy, habitat conservation needs, and insect, disease and fire recovery. These activities could include, but are not limited to: planting trees, pre-commercial and commercial thinning, salvage/sanitation forest treatments, control of competing vegetation, fuels reduction, riparian or upland restoration, project development and layout, planning analysis and document preparation needed in concert with or to carry out Land Use Planning Decisions, Endangered Species Act or cultural clearances, data collection, and monitoring.
BLM California has an opportunity to work with partner organizations to assist and collaborate with a recipient to access additional resources outside of the federal government, which not only furthers the BLM mission, but also reduces BLM staffing costs and improves our responsiveness to the public. In addition, efficiencies can be gained by working across jurisdictional boundaries, which results in greater public and private participation. Lastly, the BLM can maximize cost savings to the public by utilizing a recipient that shares similar goals of local economic improvement, environmental enhancement, and resource sustainability.
