Welcome to the Kansas Forest Service!

Kansas Forest Service serves the landowners, communities, forest and arboriculture industries, and citizens of the state through protection and management of forests, woodlands, and windbreaks. 

Kansas Forest Service had the privilege of hosting the Council of Western State Foresters Western Forestry Leadership Coalition meeting in Manhattan Kansas in 2022. This is the first time these groups have had the opportunity to assemble in 2 years.

Watch this 3-minute video summary of the conference!

Have you been wondering how many fire districts have a tree city? Or, if an arboretum is located near a timber buyer? Or where our trees are in Kansas? This map can show you all of that and more!
