The mission of the New York Forest Owners Association (NYFOA) is to promote sustainable forestry practices and improved stewardship on privately owned woodlands in New York State. NYFOA is a not-for-profit group of people who care about NYS trees and forests and are interested in the thoughtful management of private forests for the benefit of current and future generations.

Through local chapter and statewide activities such as woods walks and tours, the bi-monthly New York Forest Owner magazine, and affiliation with other organizations with similar objectives, NYFOA helps woodland owners to achieve their management objectives for their properties and encourages the appreciation of the qualities and importance of New York’s forests.

Wanted: Landowners for Member Profiles! As many of you know, we include a member landowner profile in each issue of the Forest Owner magazine. The next several issues of the Forest Owner, especially in 2015, will be highlighting various aspects of forest regeneration or restoration. Do you have any experiences related to your efforts, successes, or failures with forest regeneration? If so, we would love to hear from you and any others that would be interested in being interviewed for the profile. If interested, please click on the link below and we will be in touch. The time commitment is only about 30 minutes for the interview. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/OwnerProfile

Even if you don’t have any stories to tell about regeneration we are still interested in hearing from you if you would like to be profiled for the Forest Owner. Any questions? Please contact me at the number or e-mail below.
