LOUISIANA FORESTRY ASSOCIATION MISSION
THE LOUISIANA FORESTRY ASSOCIATION WAS FORMED IN 1947
The mission of the Louisiana Forestry Association is to be an advocate for the sustainable growing, harvesting and manufacturing of Louisiana's forests and for the people whose livelihoods depend on these forest resources..
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 almost half 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 almost 5,000 members, mostly large and small landowners along with foresters, employees of forest products industries, wood suppliers, loggers and related industries.
