The Forest and Rangeland Renewable Resources Planning Act of (RPA) is enacted in an effort to monitor forest resources in the United States. The RPA mandates comprehensive assessments in Author: American Experience. Natural resource managers need improved capabilities to assess forest and rangeland conditions, to elicit and incorporate stakeholder values and objectives, and to project the implications of management activities, disturbances and risks in order to help identify successful strategies for collaborative resource management plans. Research in this problem .
This assessment highlights key issues, resource status and trends and priority landscapes for the subsequent strategy document, which will provide a framework for state and federal programs to support good forest and rangeland stewardship in California. Over the last 20 years, an “in-migration” of new landowners has occurred in California's forests and rangelands. Rural housing trends in California mirror similar trends in the nation: between and , 10% of private forests and rangelands were fragmented into areas with more than one house per 20 acres ().The ecological and management impacts of exurban parcelization .

Types of rangeland. The United States Environmental Protection Agency defines rangeland as "lands on which the native vegetation (climax or natural potential plant community) is predominantly grasses, grass-like plants, forbs, or shrubs suitable for grazing or browsing use."
