Greater Flagstaff Forests Partnership
GFFP The Greater Flagstaff Forests Partnership is an alliance of environmental, governmental, and business organizations dedicated to researching and demonstrating approaches to forest ecosystem restoration in the ponderosa pine forests surrounding Flagstaff, Arizona. The Partnership's three primary goals are to:
  • Restore natural ecosystem structures, function, and composition of ponderosa pine forests.
  • Manage forest fuels to reduce the probability of catastrophic fire.
  • Research, test, develop, and demonstrate key ecological, economic, and social dimensions of restoration efforts. 

GFFP was instrumental in the development of the Greater Flagstaff Community Wildfire Protection Plan (CWPP), which was approved in January 2005. The CWPP was reviewed and revised in 2012 - click here to view this report.

Cost-Share funds are available to property owners in the greater Flagstaff area to conduct forest treatments. The purpose of such work is to reduce wildfire threat, insect occurrence, and improve forest health. Funds will pay for up to 50% of the cost. For further information email our office at:
