Why become a member?

Owning woodland is fun and rewarding. But we know it is not always easy to find the information you are looking for or get the help you need. Since 1975, we have been the organization that works to help, support and represent the interests of small woodland owners.

Annual Appeal

Our Annual Appeal has begun. After reaching and exceeding last year's goal of $38,000, we have set an even more ambitious target for 2014-15 at $50,000.
