Mississippi Forest Legacy Program Updated:11/2020

The Forest Legacy Program (FLP) is a USDA Forest Service program in partnership with Mississippi that will help support local efforts to protect environmentally sensitive, privately owned forest lands threatened by conversion to non-forest use through land acquisition and conservation easements.

The Forest Legacy Assessment of Need identifies three Forest Legacy areas (North, Central, and Southeast Mississippi) where important natural forest communities exist on private lands that may are potentially threatened by conversion from urban and suburban growth, or other threats.

The Assessment of Need recommends these areas of the state be designated as Forest Legacy areas so that willing landowners may nominate their property as a possible Forest Legacy Tract.

The Forest Legacy Program (was authorized by the Food, Agriculture, Conservation, and Trade Act of 1990 to identify and protect environmentally important, private forestlands threatened with conversion to non-forest uses.
