The mission of the division is to “protect and promote the values provided by trees and forests.” The division “executes all matters pertaining to forestry, forest management, and forest land within the jurisdiction of the state...” Primary responsibilities of the agency include managing state-owned reservations and forests, preventing and controlling forest fires, monitoring and protecting forest health, enforcing forest protection laws, and gathering statistics and information.
