The Landscape Scale Restoration Program is a Forest Service State and Private Forestry competitive grant program that funds priority projects identified in State Forest Action plans. In doing so, the program helps ensure that our nation’s forests continue to provide important benefits to the American public, including timber and fuel wood, wildlife habitat, watershed protection, and well-paying rural jobs.
Landscape Scale Restoration projects cross multiple jurisdictions, including state, private, rural, and urban forests, and integrate other Forest Service programs to address large-scale issues such as wildfire risk reduction, watershed protection and restoration, and the spread of forest insects and disease.
How the Program Works
Open to state forestry agencies, Landscape Scale Restoration is a competitive grant program that bundles and coordinates several State and Private Forestry programs and authorities to more efficiently deliver cross-boundary impacts. While LSR funds can only be spent on nonfederal lands, the program still delivers benefits to national forests by contributing to healthier and more resilient landscapes overall.
State forestry agencies are eligible to submit projects that address the top priorities identified in their Forest Action Plans. Projects are developed in partnership with diverse stakeholders and effectively leverage local knowledge, expertise, and resources.
