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.


Full individual membership in the association shall be open to all owners and/or managers of 5 or more acres of woodland within McKean, Potter, Cameron and Elk Counties. Full membership entitles a member to one vote in all matters of the association. Properties of multiple blocks or those held by more than one owner, such as clubs, corporations, partnerships, estates, etc., shall have one vote.

What are we doing?

The members of the association will meet to discuss matters of mutual interest or concern.

Meeting subjects could range from timber management, timber sales contracts, soil erosion control, insect pests, disease outbreaks, forest land taxation, available markets, landowner liabilities and issues concerning mineral and gas rights..
