Research

The Forest Landowner Foundation is the only entity dedicated to focused research, data, and communications that enable those who own and manage their working forests with a holistic approach – financially, environmentally and socially – to fulfill their family’s forest legacy and pass on the tradition to future generations.

Our intent is to correct the popular narrative, redefine who America’s family forest landowners really are, and to communicate accurate statistics so that public perception, media outlets, policymakers, and corporations understand the commitment of family owners and the vast resources family forests offer both for ecological needs and wood supply demands.

Our intent is simple:

1. Be a source for issues, facts, and figures related to private working forest that is accurate, unbiased, and understandable. Use this data to Reclaim the Narrative.

2. Create a positive perception of America’s forest landowners as responsible stewards of forest resources and the environment.

3. Facilitate informed decisions by diverse stakeholders (NGOs, the private sector, government agencies) regarding private forestry-related issues.

FLF funded research supporting the economic viability of the private forest landowner in areas of expanding the use of wood, new markets, management and ownership of family forests.
