The DNRC manages 6.7 million acres of land. Our state forests are an integral part of Montana's natural resources. Using the Montana Forest Action Plan as our guiding document we work to keep our forests healthy and sustainable for generations to come through cross-boundary forest restoration and management.

Our work supports cross-boundary, landscape-scale projects. Our stewardship approach promotes working forests that are resilient to disturbance and a changing climate. We provide information that is current, accurate, reliable, and grounded in the best available science, and communicate that information using intuitive, state-of-the-art public interfaces.

We value our relationships with both our internal and external partners and rely on the strength of these partnerships to deliver a coordinated approach to managing forests across ownerships.
