Region 1 & 4: Key Successes and Innovations


Fuels for Schools – The Fuels for Schools project is an innovation that solves two problems by making them into compatible solutions. For example, how do you pay for the removal of unmarketable, fire-prone trees from the forest; and how can you better supply schools with clean-burning, readily available energy? The answer is the Fuels for Schools program that has implemented the use of wood biomass as an energy source to provide economical heat in public schools. Go ahead, find out more!

Presidential Management Fellows (PMF) Program – The PMF program, administered by the Office of Personnel Management, is a tool to recruit the best and brightest young professionals with an interest in public service into the federal government. Regions 1 and 4 express support for Cooperative Forestry’s effort to recruit, train and actively place Presidential Management Fellows. There are currently 14 active Presidential Management Fellows working in the Forest Service, and many more that have already graduated from the program and moved into permanent management positions. If you have questions about the Forest Service’s work with this program, please contact mdechter@fs.fed.us.

Fence and Infrastructure Reconstruction Program – A temporary program to help ranchers, the watersheds they reside in, and the local economy in the aftermath of devastating fires. This program provided imminent relief for over 300 fire-stricken landowners whose livelihoods were on the “economic edge.”

Relationships with State Foresters - State foresters are the primary delivery mechanism for most Cooperative Forestry programs. It is the great depth and strength of this partnership that is responsible for successful on-the-ground results. See how Regions 1 and 4 Cooperative Forestry and State Foresters work together in a variety of different areas.
