Woodland - Winter 2019 - 35

sustainability of white oak forests -
and their economic, social and
environmental benefits - for
centuries, not just decades.
With the support of two LSR
grants and significant private and
state contributions, the Initiative
is conducting a range-wide white
oak assessment. Part of the
assessment includes building a
conservation plan and strategies
to support oak research, technical
assistance for private and public
landowners, and communications
and public policy.
White oak restoration is only
one example demonstrating how
the Landscape Scale Restoration
program is delivering cross
boundary forest conservation
impact. To explore more LSR

How You Can Get Involved
AFF supports policies that create
or encourage landscape-scale
forest restoration or management
through public-private partnerships:
Locally-based, crossboundary approaches work: The
American Forest Foundation (AFF)
and the National Association of
State Foresters have seen success
working collaboratively with local
partners at a landscape scale.
Creating public-private partnerships
and working together not only
results in positive outcomes for
our natural resources, but also
motivates action by landowners
who might otherwise hesitate if their
neighbors do not likewise act.
Expanding landscape scale
restoration work: We advocate
for the U.S. Forest Service to
expand their existing approach
to conducting landscape scale
restoration efforts to support
restoration across the landscape

on federal, state and private lands.
This will make more effective use of
federal and non-federal resources by
focusing on projects that deliver the
greatest impact on regional priorities,
but it would further support the state
and local priorities identified in State
Forest Action Plans.
Cooperative conservation
work across property lines:
Last year, Congress acted to end a
detrimental process known as "fire
borrowing," instead allowing access
to on-budget disaster funding to help
pay for fighting catastrophic wildfires
and treating these incidents like
other natural disasters. Thanks to
this policy fix, the U.S. Forest Service
can now continue partnerships with
private landowners on planned,
cross-boundary conservation
activities, enabling vibrant forest
health across a landscape.
It's vital that your policymakers
hear from landowners like you to
ensure your voices and stories are
top of mind as they make decisions
about programs and funding that
impact forests in your region. Your
state representatives, as well as
your members of Congress, may not
realize how the high costs of forest
management and market access
challenges affect you, your local
economies as well as the wildlife,
water and clean air we all depend
on. You can make a difference in
whether or not our leaders include
funding opportunities for private
land management to improve forest
health and resiliency.
