Discover Forests in Kansas
There are 5.2 million acres of forests, woodlands, and trees in Kansas that occupy 10 percent of the state’s total land area. These forests resources can be described as rural forests (2.2 million acres), agroforests (2 million acres of windbreaks, shelterbelts, streamside forests and fence rows), and community forests (1 million acres). Ninety-five percent of the State’s rural forest is privately owned. The remaining five percent is under the ownership and control of public agencies such as the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism, and the U.S. Department of Defense and Corp of Engineers.
