People worldwide have heated with wood for thousands of years. New Englanders are no exception and have long depended on native forests to provide wood for warmth. But set aside old images of the inefficient fireplace and smoking wood stove. New technology has made wood burning appliances a truly modern way to use this traditional fuel.
The Massachusetts Forest Alliance represents and advocates on behalf of forest landowners, industry professionals, businesses, and others who support a strong, sustainable forest economy in the Commonwealth. MFA works on a variety of policy initiatives, including tax programs, property zoning, modern wood heat, forest management, and many more regulations that affect our membership.
The greatest danger faced by members of the forest community is getting bit by the black-legged deer tick.
The USDA Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS), MassWildlife, and the Massachusetts Forest Alliance are working together to provide private landowners in Massachusetts technical and financial assistance offered through the Massachusetts Collaborative for Private Forestland – Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP).
The Massachusetts Forest Alliance is the leading organization representing forest landowners and industry professionals in Massachusetts. MFA works tirelessly on your behalf to advocate for a strong, sustainable forest economy.
In addition to representing the forest community at the state and local levels, MFA offers educational seminars and continuing education workshops for landowners and industry professionals. Topics often center around forestry practices, regulation, and policy.
