Oklahoma Forestry Services is currently in the process of developing a Statewide Forest Resource Assessment and Strategic Plan, officials announced Thursday.
The assessment will be a comprehensive analysis of forest conditions, trends, threats, opportunities, and issues of concern within the state. It also will identify priority rural and urban forest landscape areas across Oklahoma. Oklahomans are encouraged to participate in a survey through March 7 targeting issues affecting the state’s forest, which will provide a framework for investing resources and determining the future of Oklahoma’s forests, the agency said. The online survey is at forestry.ok.gov/state-forest-assessment. For more information, contact Erin Johnson at 522-6158.
