Document Description
The USAL Redwood Forest Conservation Easement acquisition includes approximately 49,576 acres of privately owned forestlands. CALFIRE is acquiring the property as a conservation easement for the purpose of protecting typical forestland uses including wildlife habitat, watershed stabilization and the continued production of forest products. The federal Forest Legacy program was created with clearly delineated open-space conservation goals and objectives to protect environmentally important private forest lands threatened with conversion to non-forest uses pursuant to Section 1217 of Title XII of the Food, Agriculture, Conservation and Trade Act of 1990 (16 U.S.C. Section 2103C). Congress has awarded a Forest Legacy Program grant to CALFIRE in order to aid in the purchase of the Easement conveyed for conservation of forested agricultural and open-space land.
