Unlocking the power of America's family forests to fight climate change
The potential in America’s family-owned forests has largely been undervalued.
The mission of the American Forest Foundation is to deliver meaningful conservation impact through the empowerment of family forest owners. Working together, we strive to tackle climate change and positively impact the health of America's family forests, our communities and the planet.
How We Do It
Working together, we’re tackling our most pressing conservation issues.
Tools & Support for Landowners
We’re connecting family forest owners to the resources they need.
Government actions can support both landowners and conservation.
Philanthropy & Giving
Your support helps empower America’s family forest owners.
