The overarching goal of state forest management is to manage the state forests sustainably under sound ecosystem management, to retain their wild character and maintain biological diversity while providing pure water, emphasizing opportunities for dispersed recreation, habitats for plants and animals, sustained yields of quality timber, and environmentally sound utilization of mineral resources.  Management of state forests is guided by Penn's Woods, the Bureau's strategic plan and the State Forest Resource Management Plan.
