On behalf of all of the State Foresters in the United States, I want to thank Agency Administrator Kevin Shea, you, and the APHIS leadership team for hosting the meeting with me and other members of the forest sector on March 25. It was a most productive discussion of our shared interests in protecting the health of the nation’s forests.
The National Association of State Foresters has submitted comments in response to the proposed interim rule for the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) issued by the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) (79 Fed. Reg. 65836).
The National Association of State Foresters (NASF) is pleased to provide comment on the two above-referenced proposed rule changes. NASF represents the directors of state forestry agencies from all 50 states, eight U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia. State foresters manage and protect, or assist private landowners in the management and protection, of more than two-thirds of the nation's forests; more than 500 million acres.
The National Association of State Foresters (NASF) welcomes today’s letter to Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel submitted by a bipartisan group of U.S. Senators urging the Department of Defense (DoD) to completely resolve the federal excess property impasse.
The Senate letter emphasized the importance of federal excess property to state foresters and our partners in responding to wildfire and protecting life and property in communities across the nation.
