Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests

Founded by a handful of concerned citizens in 1901, the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests is now one of the country's most effective statewide land conservation organizations. As a non-profit membership organization, the Forest Society is dedicated to protecting the state's most important landscapes while promoting the wise use of its renewable natural resources.

Our accomplishments include:

  • Helping to protect over one million acres of open space in the state
  • Effectively promoting good land stewardship, through education and by example
  • Advocating for public policies that encourage the wise conservation of natural resources

Our 10,000 members make us what we are today – a unique blend of visionary land trust, balanced environmental advocate and intelligent forestry association. We think it's a winning combination – for New Hampshire's beautiful landscapes, its caring people and for the many generations to come.
