Fourteen states provide cost-share assistance for approved forestry practices. Host programs are intended to increase forest productivity. Funding is typically from state appropriations and/or taxes on primary forest products. Cost-share rates range up to 80 percent, but most programs are at the 50 percent level. All programs require an approved forest management program. Eligible practices are generally reforestation, site preparation, and timber stand improvement.
