The North Central Forest Landowners Association is the largest of 23 forest landowner association in Pennsylvania with over 200 members representing 200,000 acres in the 4 county area.
It is the purpose of this association to provide information, exchange of ideas, and educate its members and others about the methods and benefits of proper forest management.
We emphasize providing awareness of best forest management practices to sustain the forest and meet each landowners objectives including recreational, economic and forest conservation values.
The association's educational efforts, in cooperation with DCNR Bureau of Forestry and Penn State Cooperative Extension can consider a wide variety of ownership objectives and recognize the importance of forests to the North Central Region. Through these affiliations are resources for an abundance of information about our forests in Pennsylvania.
Who is it for?
This association is geared toward private forest landowners (non industrial and industrial) and others who are interested in learning more about forest and wildlife management practices and resources that they can utilize in managing and enjoying their forest land. This is an opportunity to meet with other private forest landowners who have similar experiences that may help you identify and/or meet your own forest/wildlife management objectives.
