University of California Cooperative Extension forestry is dedicated to extending the resources of the University of California to local residents and landowners to help them solve natural resources problems. This website contains information, resources, publications, and big ideas about how to steward forest land in California. Topics of interest for California forests are listed on the left tabs. Most have associated publications and educational opportunities embedded within topic pages. Resources including technical and financial assistance programs, informational websites, and educational opportunities are listed in the top tabs.
UCCE recently published a comprehensive educational series on forest stewardship for forest landowners. This 24 part publication can be downloaded for free here: Forest Stewardship Series (Parts 1 through 24). Each of the series publications is also available separately on the topic pages on the left and under the publication tab above.
