The forests of southeastern Utah are threefold: the pine/aspen canopy of laccolithic mountains, the juniper/pinyon cover of high plateaus, and the willow/cottonwood galleries of riparian corridors. The connection of these forest canopies with our water resources in arid lands is of vital importance.

The Manti-La Sal National Forest manages the La Sal and Abajo Mountains. The Bureau of Land Management manages the Henry Mountains and the majority of the high plateaus and riparian corridors. Navajo Mountain is managed by the tribal government of the Navajo Nation. The remainder is managed by Utah State and the National Park Service.
