Forestry activities such as thinning can be expensive for landowners. Fortunately, there are many different cost share programs that can help private land owners cover most of their forestry labor costs. Agencies such as NRCS (Natural Resource Conservation Service) and Cal Fire  offer grants that can aid in forest stand improvement, wildlife enhancement, and many other land improvement projects.
