At FLA, our mission is to grow the marketplace that delivers the prosperity of working forest families across the country. We analyze issues of concern and formulate action to achieve solutions.

Throughout the year, we host meetings around the country to connect you with resources and ideas, tailored to your local community. At these meetings, we also update you on national legislative and regulatory issues that affect your forestland, giving you a forecast for the future so you can make the best decisions for your forestland investment.
