The Vermont Department of Forests, Parks and Recreation recognizes our responsibility to promote healthy forests and manage resilient landscapes across both private and public property. At the Division of Forests, our mission is to safeguard healthy forests in collaboration with Vermont citizens. We promote best practices, sustainable use, and land respect. Through various programs, we manage Agency lands, monitor statewide forest health, empower private landowners as stewards, and engage in urban forestry, disease prevention, wildfire protection, industry support, and forestry education. Our partnerships drive our mission's success, fostering resilient landscapes for current and future generations across Vermont's lands.
