TIMO/REIT Membership Benefits

As non-industrial and non-government owners of forestland, Timberland Investment Management Organizations (TIMO) and Real Estate Investment Trusts (REIT) often share many interests with individual, private forest landowners. FLA advocates for all private forest landowners and promotes the value of America’s private forestland.

We partner with TIMO and REIT members on an individual basis to meet their unique needs, and work together to accomplish their goals. TIMO and REIT members have access to top FLA leaders and board members.

The Forest Landowners Association serves its TIMO/REIT members with:

Policy Advocacy
Three key components constitute the Forest Landowners Association’s (FLA) ongoing federal policy advocacy that protects and enhances the property rights of private forest landowners across the United States: direct lobbying, targeted campaign contributions, and national grassroots mobilization. Through direct lobbying, FLA delivers messages about forestry-related issues directly to crucial members of Congress and regulatory agencies who have the power to make decisions that impact private forest landowners. Targeted campaign contributions via the Forest Landowners Association Political Action Committee (FLA-PAC) help FLA to secure access to those very members of Congress whom FLA and its members have worked to influence. Finally, the private forest landowners who mobilize at the grassroots level strengthen those lobbying messages with personal messages to their members of Congress.

As a TIMO/REIT member, you can enjoy access to our government affairs staff and lobbyist in Washington, DC to collaborate on shared challenges.

Forest Landowner magazine
Forest Landowner magazine presents private forest landowners across the country with guidance on forestland management options, applications of current forestry research, and national legislative issues that helps them sustain their forestland ownership. A benefit of membership in the Forest Landowners Association, Forest Landowner is published six times a year and draws from the expertise of top forestry professionals, not only in authorship, but also in the volunteer committee that is responsible for procuring the content that is specifically designed to serve private forest landowners. Members of the Forest Landowners Association also have access to searchable magazine archives. Reported as the most popular benefit, 94% of members give their copies of Forest Landowner to 1 to 3 additional readers.

TIMO and REIT members receive a 15% discount on ad space and recognition as corporate partners in the magazine.

Fast Facts e-Newsletter
Fast Facts is the Forest Landowners Association’s bi-weekly e-newsletter that alerts members of current government affairs issues affecting them, in order to mobilize its national grassroots network on behalf of private forest landowners across the country.

University members receive an unlimited number of Fast Facts subscriptions for faculty and staff.

NEW: The Land Report magazine
Published quarterly, The Land Report provides news, information, and insight into America’s land for existing and potential landowners. The Land Report also profiles passionate landowners, identifies investment opportunities, and highlights outdoor gear and equipment. Members reporting acres will be mailed each issue; all other members enjoy access to a digital version of each issue on the FLA website.  



Education and Networking Opportunities
Our annual conference, advocacy day in Washington, DC, and various landowner meetings around the country attract our most active and influential members, and provide the perfect opportunity for you to connect with potential clients.

Regional and Local Meetings
Throughout the year, we host meetings around the country to connect you with potential clients in your local community. FLA works with our TIMO and REIT members to host landowner meetings that offer new ideas, new solutions, and new methods for landowner challenges. These local and regional meetings provide valuable recognition for your company and the opportunity to showcase your company’s services to engaged landowners.

National Forest Landowners Conference
The Forest Landowners Association’s Annual Conference provides private forest landowners with direct access to top experts and service and product providers in forestry who furnish the knowledge they require to make informed management decisions that safeguard their forestland investments. You will meet the most influential national forestry leaders who provide crucial insight into how public policy will affect your forestland in the years to come. Our annual conference is also the perfect opportunity to showcase your company’s services and network with our Board of Directors and most active members. The next conference is June 8–10, 2011, at Colonial Williamsburg Resort in Williamsburg, Virginia. Members receive a discounted registration rate.
