Core Values

In conjunction with our 50th Anniversary in 2013, NYFOA initiated a process to define Core Values that would inform our mission and agenda going forward. A survey was developed by Cornell University and dministered to the NYFOA Board of Directors and Chapter leadership. Results of the survey were tabulated and presented at a Board meeting in September, 2013, and the Board subsequently adopted the following Core Values for the Association:

The New York Forest Owners Association believes in:

  1. Promoting science based resources to support woodland stewardship.
  2. Supporting woodland owners in the long term stewardship of their forest resources.
  3. Raising public awareness of the challenges to sustaining our forests.
  4. Seeking collaborations with other organizations having similar goals and objectives.
  5. Respecting private property rights as they relate to sustainable forest stewardship.
