The Future of Forestry

We envision a society that values and takes action to support the economic, ecological, and social benefits of forests.

Help us make that vision a reality.

Major forces are shaping our future and the future of our forests:

Population Growth

Climate Change

Catastrophic Wildfire

Demographic Shifts

Mass Timber

Now is the time to harness these forces to create healthier forests and communities.

As a trusted resource in the forestry space, World Forestry Center has a strong foundation upon which to build a healthier forestry future.

Over our 53-year history, we have been at the intersection of people and forestry.
