Forest Action Plan

New Hampshire’s the Forest Action Plan is the product of a comprehensive planning process offering a detailed account into the most pressing challenges and opportunities currently facing our forests and the corresponding strategies crafted to address them. A new plan is released every 10 years.

Since 1948, New Hampshire's forests have been inventoried and analyzed seven times. Based on this inventory work a statewide forest resources plan is prepared about every 10 years and submitted to the Governor and Legislature.

The most recent plan, completed in 2022, was developed in response to the 2008 Farm Bill which required states to develop a statewide assessment and strategies for forest resources (now referred to as the Forest Action Plan) in order to be eligible to receive cooperative forestry assistance funds. This plan was developed with guidance from the New Hampshire Forest Advisory Board and input from public agencies, private natural resource organizations, stakeholder groups and private individuals.
