Forest Landowners Association
Stewards of America’s Forests
Who We Are
The Forest Landowners Association (FLA) is an association of landowners who are stewards of America’s private forests. FLA represents private forestland stakeholders who own and manage over 55 million acres nationwide – from large, multi-generational forest businesses to individual family landowners who view their forest as a long-term investment
Our Unique Perspective
While other organizations are working to sustain and protect the forests, FLA is working to sustain the people who own them.
We know that to have healthy forests, you must promote and protect the interests of the forest landowner.
What We Do
FLA was founded to advocate policy initiatives that address our member’s economic challenges, ensure their property rights and promote the vitality of forest landownership.
Our team works to represent the private forest landowner and their needs.
Why We Do It
Our members manage their land with a sustainable approach to ensure the prosperity of their forests for future generations.
FLA is committed to preserving America’s tradition of private forest ownership, promoting the importance of forest resources and sustainable forest management, and securing a legacy that can be passed to the next generation.
Save the Date for the 2024 Conference
The 2024 National Conference of Private Forest Landowners will be at the Omni Interlocken in Denver, CO, June 25-27, 2024.

The Forest Landowners Association was founded as Forest Farmers Association in 1941 in Jacksonville by a group of timberland owners who wanted a stronger voice in matters affecting their business. Today we are the only national representative of the economic interests of family forest landowners and their unique natural resource assets.
