Connecticut's state foresters and their partners protect our forest resources by:
- Encouraging private land owners to practice responsible long-term forest management (private landowners own 73% of Connecticut's forest, with more than two-thirds of that owned by families or individuals),
- Protecting Connecticut's forest resources from the effects of fire, insects, disease, and misuse,
- Providing accurate and timely information about Connecticut's forest resources,
- Certifying forest practitioners,
- Managing the State Forests, in which exist many large blocks of unfragmented forest land,
- Engaging municipalities and citizens in the work of urban forestry, and
- Promoting the local forest industry.
