The mission of the Louisiana Forestry Association is to promote the health and productivity of Louisiana's forests for present and future generations through the practice of Sustainable Forestry.
The Louisiana Forestry Association was formed in 1947 to foster the practice of forestry, to rebuild the state's cut-over lands, and to build a healthy forest industry. Now, 50 years later, forests cover 48% of the state's land area and forestry is the second largest manufacturing employer in Louisiana. That is the true Louisiana success story.
The Louisiana Forestry Association today is a statewide, private, nonprofit association made up of 5,000 members, mostly large and small landowners along with foresters, employees of forest products industries, wood suppliers , loggers and related industries.
