OUR VISION AND MISSION

Our vision is to establish community-based forests that provide both critical habitat for increased biodiversity and improved regional economic vitality.

Our mission is to acquire, protect, restore, and manage forestlands and other related resources in the Redwood Region for the long-term benefit of the communities located there.

OUR GOAL:
CREATE WORKING COMMUNITY FORESTS

By purchasing and sustainably managing the once great redwood forests surrounding the communities of the redwood region in northwestern California, we will provide a social, environmental and economic benefit for all of our citizens by returning net profits directly back into the communities served.

Why We Are Concerned

Millions of acres of industrial lands are being sold each year in the United States. Until now, many of these timberlands have been managed to provide short term economic gains. This has resulted in depleted forest ecosystems leading to a contentious public debate. The ability of a non-profit corporation to purchase these forestlands will break this cycle as well as enhance community opportunities.

Cutover forestlands do not have the same appeal for preservation as old-growth. However, they are just as important in terms of large, landscape-scale protection and restoration of habitat. Read More
