CAL FIRE’s mission emphasizes the management and protection of California’s natural resources; a goal that is accomplished through ongoing assessment and study of the State’s natural resources and an extensive CAL FIRE Resource Management Program. CAL FIRE oversees enforcement of California’s forest practice regulations, which guide timber harvesting on private lands. Reviews and inspections ensure protection of watershed and wildlife, as well as renewal of timber resources. Department foresters and fire personnel work closely to encourage and implement fuels management projects to reduce the threat of uncontrolled wildfires. CAL FIRE Foresters promote conservation and the importance of our trees and forests to Californians of all ages.
