Connecticut's state foresters and their partners protect our forest resources by:

  • Encouraging private land owners to practice responsible long-term forest management (private landowners own 73% of Connecticut's forest, with more than two-thirds of that owned by families or individuals),
  • Protecting Connecticut's forest resources from the effects of fire, insects, disease, and misuse,
  • Providing accurate and timely information about Connecticut's forest resources,
  • Certifying forest practitioners,
  • Managing the State Forests, in which exist many large blocks of unfragmented forest land,
  • Engaging municipalities and citizens in the work of urban forestry, and
  • Promoting the local forest industry.
