Become An FLA Member

FLA focuses on the private forest landowner — because without the landowner, America’s private forests cannot be successful.

 FLA takes on the issues affecting you, the landowner, and gives you a voice to be heard on the issues you are concerned about.  FLA is the only national representative of the economic interests of private forest landowners and their unique natural resource assets.

 We advocate for you!   

Why Choose FLA

As a member of FLA, not only are you supporting our mission to ensure an expanding economic climate that enables you to prosper from your forestlands, but you are also accessing benefits to grow your resources and to connect with forest experts.
