As a membership organization with over 10,000 members, the Forest Society is dedicated to protecting the state's most important landscapes while promoting the wise use of its renewable natural resources. The Forest Society envisions a living landscape where managed woodlands, farms and wild lands are woven into the fabric of community life. We envision people caring for lands that sustain dynamic communities with clean water and air, forest and agricultural products, habitat for native plants and animals, scenic beauty, good jobs, and recreational opportunities.
