It is an amazing fact that family landowners like us own half of all the forested landscapes in America. We invite you to join us in our mission to manage and protect the health of these vital resources.

The National Woodland Owners Association (NWOA) understands, assists, and joins together people who are stewards of wooded lands and care deeply about the future of forests, forestry and land use. Headquartered in Washington DC with 42 affiliated state landowner associations, we are the largest family woodland owner association in America, representing 11 million family woodland owners who own and manage half of all forested landscapes in America. The National Woodland Owners Association is a 501(c)(3) organization and is exempt from Federal income taxes under Section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. NWOA is a publicly supported non-profit organization established to conduct charitable, educational, research and scientific programs aimed at the responsible use and conservation of renewable resources. Our staff and Board are passionate woodland owners and foresters dedicated to the health, maintenance and sustainability of all forests, but we need your help. Join the National Woodland Owners Association and help us shape the future landscape in the best way woodland owners can, together. Membership dues are tax deductible as a business expense, depending on how forestry income is reported. Cash donations are fully deductible as a charitable contribution. For tax purposes NWOA sends a written confirmation of all donations for the previous year in January.
