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, biomass, roadways, and many more regulations that affect our membership.
Check out our new Forest Voices Project to read the stories of people in the forest economy-foresters, landowners, timber harvesters, and more! You can also nominate yourself or someone you know to be highlighted by this project. Forest Voices is all about telling the real stories of real people who make MFA's mission of a strong, sustainable, forest economy possible! We thank you for all you do!
MFA’s Annual Meeting and Conference will take place on Saturday, May 5th, at Mass Wildlife’s Headquarters in Westborough. This year’s conference’s theme is “Loving the Land”. The conference will feature presentations on wildlife management, climate change, road improvements, and different ways to generate income from your woods – so anyone who owns or manages woods should make plans to attend!
