Caring for New Hampshire's Forests since 1925


We help citizens and landowners learn about and care for New Hampshire's forests, trees, wildlife and habitats.

We assist: 

  • Landowners - We visit your property, free of charge and help you achieve your woodlot objectives including forestry, recreation, wildlife habitat, water resources, scenic beauty and income. 
  • Communities - We help you manage town-owned lands, plan land conservation projects, identify natural resources and offer public educational workshops. 
  • Natural resource professionals - We offer professional development for foresters, loggers, wetland scientists, forest industry professionals, wildlife consultants and others.
