State Forest

A state forest is a forest that is administered or protected by some agency of a sovereign state or U.S. state.

The precise application of the term varies by jurisdiction. For example:

  • In Australia, it refers to forest that is protected by state laws, rather than by the Government of Australia.
  • In New Zealand, it is forest that is controlled by a central government agency.
  • In Poland, state-owned forests are managed by the State Forests agency
  • In the United Kingdom, it refers to any forest (usually plantations) owned and managed by the Forestry Commission.
  • In the United States, it refers to a forest owned by one of the individual states.
