    Florida Forest Service The mission of the Florida Forest Service is to protect and manage the forest resources of Florida, ensuring that they will be available for future generations. We manage over 1 million acres of state forests for multiple public uses, including timber, recreation and wildlife habitat. The BFPA was the second privately operated forest fire protection association in the country and was organized to provide protection on more than 1,, acres of private and state forestlands. The Association was a voluntary organization, financed by assessments to members of the Association, with costs prorated according to the acreage.   In response, the Forest Service is extending “stewardship contracts” from 10 to 20 years in an effort to increase the market for wood products in areas where mills are scarce. Categorical exclusions available for wildfire mitigation projects, allowing them to speed past environmental reviews, have also increased.
