Our Mission and Goals

“To promote the conservation and sustainable management of family forests”

The Family Forest Foundation was founded on the premise that family-owned forests are integral to the long-term sustainability of Washington State’s rural environment and economy. Established by a small group of forest landowners in 2001, the Foundation is working to develop the necessary incentives to ensure family forests remain economically and ecologically viable into the future.

 The Foundation’s goals are to ensure that:

  • Family forests are ecologically enduring.
  • Family forests are economically prosperous.
  • Family forests are recognized for their contributions to public values.
