pondorosaThe 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 (pdf, 151 pp., 8.35 MB).
