The Florida Forest Service consists of more than 1,250 dedicated employees with the mission to protect and manage the forest resources of Florida, ensuring that they are available for future generations. Wildfire prevention and suppression are key components in their efforts to protect homeowners from the threat of damage in a natural, fire-dependent environment.
For advice about managing your forestland, call your County Forester. A County Forester can visit your land and make recommendations about forest managment planing, cost-share programs, insect and disease identification analysis and more.
Programs are available to help you protect and improve your Florida forestland. Find assistance with reforestation, southern pine beetle prevention, cogongrass treatment, longleaf pine and many more programs.
Find current conditions by county, burn bans, and helpful tips regarding wildfires in Florida. For wildfire emergencies, call 911 immediately or contact a local forestry field unit office.
