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.

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.
