Forest Conservation Projects
Focused on conserving the 60% of America’s forests that are privately owned and most threatened by development and fragmentation, we protect the natural resources provided by forests, save wildlife habitat, and create economic value for forested lands beyond the traditional marketplace.
Private forests can range from one acre to thousands of acres and their owners may be industrial timber companies, investment firms, or families that have owned their land for generations. Every conservation project that we manage on private forest lands is different and each project has an inspiring story to share. Some family forest owners face estate taxes that threaten their heritage of stewardship. Other owners have remaining old growth forest they want to protect in a way they can afford. Still others are committed to restoring biodiversity and habitat for threatened species while actively managing their forest for wood products.
These forests represent a community’s livelihood, a business’s revenue stream, or a family’s legacy and we are committed to protecting those assets.
