Northeast Utah is losing family farms, ranches, and working forests at
an alarming rate. With increasing production costs, uncertain profits,
and fluctuating land values, many multigenerational farmers, ranchers,
and foresters feel they have little choice other than selling their land
The U.S. Forest Service, the Utah Department of Natural Resources, The Trust for Public Land, the Utah Quality Growth Commission and the Mitchell family announced today the permanent protection of 1,855 acres of forested ranchland on the north side of the town of Brian Head.
Working from more than 30 offices nationwide, The Trust for Public Land helps communities raise funds, conduct research and planning, acquire and protect land, and design and renovate parks, playgrounds, trails, and gardens.
