About Florida State Forests

Florida is home to 37 state forests, covering over 1,070,000 acres. Healthy forests provide citizens with sustainable wood production, fresh air, wildlife habitat, clean water, enjoyable outdoor recreation, and quality of life. Yet in recent years, unhealthy forests have been major contributors to Florida's disastrous wildfires and unprecedented outbreaks of southern pine beetles. The region is frequently hit by strong storms and hurricanes, contributing severe, long-term damage to forest resources.

Florida state forests provide habitat to a wide variety of wildlife. Endangered species that inhabit Florida's forests and wetlands include the Florida panther, the American alligator and American crocodile, sea turtles and manatees. Habitat loss and degradation is a major threat to the survival of these species.   

The majority of Florida's endangered species live in wetlands, which play a key role in the health of our environment. Many of Florida’s wetlands have been altered by human activities, changing their hydrological function and threatening the natural communities that rely on them. 

Longleaf pine ecosystems are another vital part of Florida's natural environment, supporting rare animal species like red-cockaded woodpeckers and gopher tortoises. Longleaf pine forests and savannas have been drastically reduced from an estimated 90 million acres to less than 3 million acres, largely due to urbanization and over-utilization. Your support will help our amazing reforestation partners to replant and restore these important ecological areas.  

More Places We Plant

  • California

    Devastated by wild fires this year, California needs our help now more than ever. We're planting trees in the Plumas National Forest to help recoup the 65,000 acres burned in the 2007 Moonlight Fire.

  • Oregon

     Forests are shrinking on state and private land in Oregon, where an estimated 522,000 acres of forest cover have disappeared since 2000. That's an area six times larger than the city of Portland, equal to more than half of Oregon's designated state forests. 

  • Colorado

    These precious forests face serious threats, including insect infestations, long-term drought, and forest fires. Unhealthy forests set the stage for exceptionally large, devastating wildfires that significantly increase risks of dangerous flooding, extreme erosion, degraded water quality and reduced water storage capacity.

  • Senegal

    46.7% of Senegal's population lives below the poverty line. We're focusing on the reforestation of Fatick, a town of about 25,000 in western Senegal.

  • U.S. National Forests

    Working on behalf of the American public, the NFF leads forest conservation efforts and promotes responsible recreation. We believe these lands, and all they provide, are an American treasure and are vital to the health of our communities.

  • Madagascar

    Madagascar is more than just an island from an animated movie. It’s a nation with over 200,000 species of plants and animals that don’t exist anywhere else in the world. But more than 90% of Madagascar’s original forests have been destroyed, displacing entire animal species and taking away the Malagasy’s ability to farm and live on the land.

  • Haiti

    Haiti is the world's 3rd hungriest country, and only 2% of the country's original forests remain. 

  • Pacific NW Orca Project

    Planting trees along rivers and streams of the Pacific Northwest restores habitat for the endangered orca. Trees help reduce pollution and improve the health and quantity of salmon for the orca to eat!
