Promoting healthy and productive forests in Louisiana for present and future generations through the practice of

Sustainable Forestry

LOUISIANA FORESTRY ASSOCIATION MISSION

 

THE LOUISIANA FORESTRY ASSOCIATION WAS FORMED IN 1947

 

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 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.
