About Forestry

Forested lands in Utah are one of the state’s most valuable natural resources. They provide scenic beauty, wildlife habitat, clean air and supply timber products.

Most of the forested lands in the state are held by private landowners or by the US Forest Service.

Each of the Division’s six area offices employs a forester who works with landowners and lessees to provide assistance to those wishing to utilize, improve or conserve their forested lands.

The state also promotes urban and communitiy forestry through programs like Tree City USA and the Arbor Day poster contest.
