Massachusetts Forest Landowners Association

The Massachusetts Forest Landowners Association was begun in 1970 as the Massachusetts Land League to encourage landowners to care for their forest land and conserve it for future generations to use and enjoy. The Land League operated as the Massachusetts Forestry Association from 1985 until 2007 when members voted to change its name to the Massachusetts Forest Landowners Association to emphasize MFLA’s focus on landowners and landowner issues

MFLA’s mission is to educate and advocate for the interests of forest landowners in Massachusetts, the conservation and stewardship of Massachusetts trees and forests, and the health of a sustainable forest-based economy.

MFLA is the only statewide, non-profit organization with an exclusive focus on the forests and forest landowners of Massachusetts. MFLA focuses on positive, constructive ways of improving and ensuring the health, care, and use of the trees, forests and associated resources of the state for generations to come. MFLA seeks to achieve these goals by a sound program of information, advocacy, education, example and caring involvement.

MFLA tries to educate its members and the public about ways to better care for woodlands. MFLA encourages all landowners to consider what they want to happen with their land: whether to grow trees, encourage wildlife, protect natural resources, or provide beautiful settings for recreation. MFLA encourages landowners to manage and protect their woodlands. MFLA advocates on behalf of woodland owners on policies, laws and regulations that may affect their land
