Abstract

State agencies responsible for the use, management, and protection of forests have increased in number and have become increasingly more diverse in mission and organization. A 2000-2001 assessment of state agencies affecting forest conditions in the North found that such agencies are dispersed over all sectors and levels of state government; a state's lead forestry agency often is only a small piece in the puzzle of state agencies affecting forests; consequences of fragmented state agency responsibility for forests generally are adverse, especially public confusion over agency roles and lack of integrated resource management; and coordination among state agencies affecting forest conditions takes many forms, although its occurrence generally is modest.
