About the Forest COI
There’s a saying that guides our work: “The best time to plant a tree was 50 years ago; the second best time is today." For us, those are words to live by because we’re all about maintaining a healthy and diverse range of forest ecosystems throughout the watershed.
Our members work to build widespread awareness about the value of public and private forestlands for environmental, economic and community benefits.
Likewise, we conduct coordinated, focused outreach in order to drive conversation about sustainable management strategies so that our forests can contribute to our quality of life with jobs, cleaner air and water, and recreation opportunities.
