Forestry Productivity Program Updated:09/2018

The Forestry Productivity Program (FPP) provides financial assistance to eligible landowners for establishing and improving a crop of trees. This program helps offset a landowner’s expenses by sharing the cost of implementing specific forestry practices designed to produce a timber crop.

Cost-share payments cover 50 percent of the total cost of implementing one or more forestry practices, not to exceed a maximum limit set for each individual practice. Eligible landowners can receive up to $10,000 of FPP assistance each fiscal year.

FPP assistance is available to landowners in all Louisiana parishes who own a minimum of five contiguous acres suitable for growing a commercially valuable timber species. There is no maximum size of ownership limiting a landowner’s participation in the program. Applications for FPP assistance are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Each landowner who participates in a FPP cooperative agreement with the Louisiana Department of Agriculture and Forestry (LDAF) shall be required to maintain the forestry usage for a period of 10 years. If land is sold, conveyed, etc. before the end of the agreement, the original recipient of funds is bound unless the new owner assumes responsibility in writing.
