What We Do
We create and advance strategies that cultivate commitment, imagination, and resources to make it easier and more rewarding to give back to forests that give so much to us.
Since 1993, we have created economic incentives that reward private forest owners for conserving their lands and practicing sustainable forestry. We have helped shape regional and national forest conservation and climate policies, all in an effort to save wildlife and their habitats, create effective climate change solutions, conserve intact forested landscapes, and protect natural water sources.
