Purpose of this program:

To effectively protect and conserve environmentally important forest areas that are threatened by conversion to nonforest uses, through conservation easements and other mechanism. The FLP is a voluntary private land conservation partnership between the Forest Service, participating States, land trusts, private landowners, and others. The Program works with State partners and operates on a ?willing seller and willing buyer? basis and is completely nonregulatory in its approach. No eminent domain authority or adverse condemnation is authorized for this Program. Participating States are required to complete an Assessment of Need (AON), which analyzes the need for the program and describes how the program will be implemented within the State.
