Field Operations

The Florida Forest Service has divided the state into 15 field units, with our State Office located in Tallahassee, FL. The Florida Forest Service’s forestry programs are implemented by its Field Operations staff within these field units. The field units are grouped into four regions, each under a Deputy Chief of field operations. The multi-functional workforce of personnel and equipment provides a more responsive and comprehensive approach to land management and wildfire control statewide.
