ODNR Forestry Stakeholder Input Requested - Ohio's Forest Action Plan

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Forestry is seeking your help to identify key issues, threats, and opportunities associated with Ohio’s forest resources.

Ohio’s Forest Action Plan is being developed as required by the Federal Farm Bill. More details about Ohio’s Forest Action Plan will be posted at forestry.ohiodnr.gov/ForestActionPlan. The webpage will include draft action plan documents and a stakeholder survey on issues, threats, and opportunities for Ohio’s forests.
