The Forest Legacy Program, administered by the U.S. Forest Service, protects privately owned forest land through the purchase of conservation easements or land in fee. Landowners’ participation in the program is entirely voluntary. The Forest Legacy Program has conserved more than 2.8 million acres of forested lands in nearly every state and territory.
