Do you own or manage natural areas that are or could be forested?

The NYSDEC Division of Lands and Forests is conducting a survey to learn more about how public and private forestland is being managed, as well as the tree planting potential for lands that are not currently forested (ex: lawns, grassland, shrubland, vineland, wetlands, and previously-developed sites). DEC will be using this data to help with reforestation and afforestation (creating new forests) efforts across the state to meet our tree planting and forest regeneration goals.

If your organization owns or manages forest land or land that could be planted to create new forests, please fill out this survey by March 29, 2024: Also, please share this link with other landowners that meet the above criteria – DEC would love to hear from everyone!
