U.S. Forest Service Partners with Private Sector to Expand Reforestation

American Forests is a conservation nonprofit that will collaborate on a 10-year plan.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced a partnership with American Forests to help reforest 4 million acres of burned, damaged national forests. Under the REPLANT Act and the infrastructure law passed in 2021, the nonprofit conservation organization will work with the U.S. Forest Service to plan a 10-year reforestation that is landscape-level and climate-resilient.

“Reforestation is an important investment for the future and resiliency of forests across the country,” said Forest Service Chief Randy Moore. “This agreement with American Forests will help the agency reduce the backlog of reforestation needs to support wildfire and disaster recovery, identify future reforestation needs, and improve our ability to monitor the impact and outcomes of this important work.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Chief Moore as he heads the U.S. Forest Service and collaborates with the nonprofit organization to reforest national lands.
  • For USDA Secretary Vilsack to seek God’s wisdom as he heads the agency.
