WOCAV Mission Statement Our Mission is to promote forest stewardship through educational programs, demonstrations and the sharing of our collective experiences with other members of the association.

The WOCAV is a forum to exchange information about practical application of Best Management Practices, using the experiences of its members, as well as the DCNR Bureau of Forestry, Penn State Extension, Clarion County Forest Stewardship Committee and local forest professionals.

The collective sharing of practical first hand experiences will enable members to establish goals and confidently manage their woodlot to meet their objectives.

The benefits of sustainable forestry practices gained and applied now will guarantee environmentally healthy and beautiful forests for our use, enjoyment and that of future generations.

*********************************************

Private landowners own approximately 12 million acres of the forested land in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

More than 90,000 families or individuals own 5 acres or more of forested land.

Collectively all these landowners manage over 70 percent of the forest resources that make up Pennsylvania.

If you are among those that own forested land, you probably have many questions concerning its health or value and even long term sustainability.

WOCAV will assist you in finding the answers.

*************************************************

TREES

Before there were humans, there were trees.
There had to be, because trees created the oxygen
that makes it possible for us to live.
And trees created the food that feeds all living things.

How do trees do this?
They combine three simple ingredients: sunlight, water and carbon dioxide.
Every green leaf of every plant is able to capture sunlight,
The leaf absorbs carbon dioxide from the air;
Water comes from the roots and travels up to the leaves.

The leaf is a chemical laboratory; taking sunlight, water and carbon dioxide,
separating, then rearranging them into a whole new form,
a form of sugar, which is the basis of all food.

Oxygen is left over and is put into the air, giving us oxygen to breathe;
Water is left over and gives the air around the tree a moist coolness.

Trees work tirelessly and quietly to make our lives possible..
If anything on Earth has been a friend to humans, it is the tree.
They give us much more than life itself: comforting shade, wood for our homes,
shelter for the birds and animals, beauty and solace of the forest.
They stand quietly and humbly, so vulnerable to our whims.

Amazingly, no human laboratory can do what the trees do.
We are smart, but we cannot create our own food or produce life-giving Oxygen.
Only the green leaf can do that.

Be a Part of Better Forest Management

The Woodland Owners of Clarion - Allegheny Valley was formed by the Clarion County Forest Stewardship Committee to foster sound forestry practices that will promote sustainable forests in the counties we serve now and in the future.

We provide workshops, demonstrations and a forum for woodland owners and other interested parties to share ideas and experiences in an informal setting.

We work with other woodland owner associations, DCNR Bureau of Forestry, Penn State Extension and similar organizations that promote forest stewardship throughout Pennsylvania.
