"SOMETIMES, WHEN THE
MARKET'S GOOD, LIKE IT
IS RIGHT NOW, PEOPLE
WILL TAP WHITE OAKS
WAY BEFORE THEY'RE
READY," RANDY SAYS.
"BY SHOWING WHAT
CAN BE DONE AND
CUTTING IT AT THE
RIGHT TIME, WE CAN

n today's environment, it's no longer enough to improve stewardship on
individual parcels of land, we must work across multiple ownerships if
we're to tackle landscape-scale issues such as wildfire, at-risk wildlife or
ensuring a sustainable supply of wood to a mill.
The Landscape Scale Restoration (LSR) program is an important way that
states, in collaboration with the Forest Service and other partners, address
forest management issues across the landscape. LSR projects focus on the
most critical priorities identified in each state's Forest Action Plan to achieve
national goals as laid out in the State and Private Forestry national themes.
As a result, LSR contributes to achieving results on all forest ownership
types and improves forest health at local, regional and national levels.
Newly improved in the 2018 Farm Bill, LSR will produce measurable
results - such as clean drinking water and species conservation - that
are important to all Americans. The 2018 Farm Bill authorized the
program through 2023 and has consistently received funding through the
appropriations process.
One example of how the Landscape Scale Restoration program can
support significant conservation impact is in the long-term sustainability of
the white oak species. White oak can be found across 17 states, ranging
from the forests in the Midwest to the eastern U.S. Not only does white oak
provide vital habitat and food for wildlife, it also plays an essential role in rural
economies, and supports a wide variety of important and growing industries
including furniture, flooring, cabinetry, barrels for spirits and wine and more.
Populations of young trees are significantly declining due to lack of forest
management, widespread disease and changing climate conditions.
Without action, our white oak forests will disappear in a generation,
resulting in significant impacts on wildlife, forest ecosystems and timber
supplies. Research indicates long-term sustainability challenges, so while
white oak growing stocks may be abundant today, regeneration failures are
common on many sites that will significantly reduce white oak availability
