Forester evaluating hemlockState Forest Lands

State Forestry Services monitors and maintains 775,000 acres of state-owned open space – that’s an area as large as the entire state of Rhode Island. These forests work hard – they produce clean water and air, absorb runoff, provide recreation, and are home to thousands of species of wildlife. To keep our forests productive, State Forestry Services monitors biodiversity, creates wildlife habitats, suppresses pest outbreaks, and restores ecologically significant areas.

Management of our forests incorporates the best forest stewardship principles derived from a forest management plan developed with public input.

These goals include:

- Research

- Education

- Public Notification

- Restore forest after pest or disease outbreak

- Encourage economic opportunity
