About Us

The Nevada Division of Forestry's vision is to manage healthy and resilient landscapes through public and private partnerships in urban, rural and wildland areas across Nevada that sustain necessary water supplies, local economies, human health, and wildlife habitat for present and future generations of Nevadans.


Our Mission

The Nevada Division of Forestry provides professional natural resource and wildland fire management services to Nevada citizens and visitors to enhance, conserve and protect forest, rangeland and watershed values, endangered plants and other native flora.



  • Continue to improve the health and vigor of Nevada’s watersheds and diverse ecosystems through increased technical assistance to landowners and land managers; develop partnerships with Federal, state and local agencies and the private sector; enforce state laws and regulations; promote scientifically-based conservation and best management practices; and educate the public on land stewardship ethics.
  • Actively protect, enhance and manage the natural resources of the state through education, technical transfer and revegetation of wildfire-damaged lands.
  • Provide scientifically-based conservation and environmental education programs utilizing Nevada’s natural resources and their management as educational opportunities.
  • Improve the environment of our cities and communities by increasing the planting of trees and improving the care and maintenance of existing trees.
  • Promote public awareness about the important role natural resources play in the quality of life for all Nevadans.

NDF Advisory Committee

This committee was formed in 2016 to achieve greater integration between NDF programs, as well as State and Private Forest programs sponsored by the US Forest Service. This single committee meets the Federal requirement for two individual groups organized under the Urban and Community Forestry as well as Stewardship and Legacy programs.
