The CFLR Program Celebrates its Five-year Anniversary

The purpose of the Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program is to encourage the collaborative, science-based ecosystem restoration of priority forest landscapes. The Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program expands collaborative landscape partnerships to:

  • encourage ecological, economic, and social sustainability;
  • leverage local resources with national and private resources;
  • facilitate the reduction of wildfire management costs, through re-establishing natural fire regimes and reducing the risk of uncharacteristic wildfire;
  • demonstrate the degree to which various ecological restoration techniques achieve ecological and watershed health objectives; and,
  • encourage utilization of forest restoration by-products to offset treatment costs, to benefit local rural economies, and to improve forest health.
