Forest management

With nearly 17.5 million acres of forested land, Utah’s forests are an important  natural resource. Significant contributions from Utah’s forests provide for numerous  social and economic benefits, including recreation, wildlife habitat, livestock grazing, open space, and forest products.

Utah’s Division of Forestry, Fire, and State Lands (FFSL) is responsible for forest health, responding to wildfires, and managing sovereign lands in the State. Each of FFSL’s six area offices employs a forester who works with landowners and lessees to provide assistance to those wishing to utilize, improve or conserve their forested lands.
