New technology has made wood burning appliances a truly modern way to use this traditional fuel.

The Massachusetts Forest Alliance advocates on behalf of our members for a strong, sustainable forest economy, responsible forest management practices, private land equity, and the continuation of working forests on public and private lands. The Massachusetts Forest Alliance was founded in 2012 for the purpose of representing and advocating for citizens and businesses who support a strong, sustainable forest economy. Three previously separate groups voted to combine their resources into one organization, to provide a unified and consistent voice in matters of forest policy.
