What We Do

We empower family forest owners to make a meaningful conservation impact in carbon sequestration, wildfire reduction, wildlife habitat, clean water, sustainable wood supplies and support for rural communities.

The American Forest Foundation is proud to work with a broad coalition of partners across the United States in developing and implementing innovative solutions that engage family forest owners in effectively addressing our nation’s most pressing conservation challenges. Together, we’re fostering communities, working to cultivate the many benefits that come from family-owned forests and demonstrating the value of those benefits for American communities, companies and landowners alike.
