The Forest Society's mission includes perpetuating New Hampshire's forests through their 'wise use', or sustainable forestry. Working forests--those managed to provide a renewable wood resource--are more likely to remain as forests rather than being lost to development. Visit this page to explore stories and projects related to working forests.
New Hampshire is unusually well endowed with forests and sparkling waters. We enjoy walking, hiking, picnicking, hunting, and working on our lands. Products from the forests and farmland nourish and shelter us. Open space sustains our economy and our culture.
The landscapes of New Hampshire help define and enrich our quality of life.
Since 1901, the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests has worked to conserve the state's most important landscapes and promote wise use of its renewable natural resources. The Forest Society is New Hampshire's oldest and largest non-profit land conservation organization.
