Our goal is to Conserve and manage working forest landscapes through:
- Promoting and sustaining a viable forest products industry that supports resource management and restoration on all lands. Tools and funding sources that support private lands stewardship, enhancement of native species and habitats, and the provision of multiple ecosystem services need to be safeguarded and increased.
- Minimizing forest conversion and fragmentation through conservation easements, appropriate development planning, and effective intergenerational transfer. Tax and other financial incentives, zoning, transfer of development rights, and other tools can help guide development decisions and facilitate the transfer and continued management of family forestlands.
