RT-130 and Pack Tests

RT-130 will be offered digitally this year. Pack tests and shelter deployment drills are still required. Pack test and shelter drills are being scheduled now across the state. Contact your local DFMO for more details or view schedule and register.

Tree Identification Courses

The ability to correctly identify tree species is important for insect and disease treatment, accurate diagnosis and proper land and tree management. By recognizing the different characteristics in trees, species diversity on private and public lands can be increased, building resilience in our tree and forested resources. Learn more and register.

Limited operations due to COVID-19 risk mitigation

To mitigate the risk of COVID-19 to our Kansas Forest Service staff, their families and those we serve, we are operating with limited staff in our State Office.

Our team is dedicated to continuing our service to Kansans as best as we can using remote technology. To continue our service, KFS staff will work remotely as they are able to do so. Please be patient with us as we will have limited staff in the State Office to answer phones and provide in-person service.

If you have questions or concerns about one-on-one meetings you currently have scheduled with our district foresters, please reach out to them directly.

Look for the latest updates on COVID-19 and additional guidance at
