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.

Three previously separate groups voted to combine their resources into one organization, to provide a unified and consistent voice in matters of forest policy.
