Forest Recovery Program

The Forest Recovery Program (FRP) is a cost-sharing program, similar to the on-going Forest Development Program (FDP), which provides financial assistance to North Carolina forest landowners to implement forestry practices.

Plant Trees and Wildlife Cover Under the Conservation Reserve Program!

The 1985 Farm Bill includes a Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) expected to retire up to 45 million acres nationwide of highly erodible, marginal cropland over the next 5 years. Landowners may retire cropland to trees, permanent wildlife habitat, permanent introduced grasses and legumes, permanent native grasses and legumes or combinations of permanent covers. Consolidated Farm Service Agency (CFSA) will reimburse up to 50% of the cost of establishing permanent covers and will pay an annual rental fee over a ten year period to participating landowners.
