The New England Forestry Foundation (NEFF) is a regional forest conservation organization dedicated to the conservation and exemplary management of the New England forests of the United States.
NEFF is celebrating its 75th year of service by publishing standards for Exemplary Forestry, increasing its 150 community forests, growing its Pooled Timber Income Fund, launching an Exemplary Forest Investment Fund and leading the effort to utilize sustainably managed local forest products in the construction of tall engineered wood buildings.
We Work for New England’s Forests
A hike through a New Hampshire forest in the fall; a Vermont barn made from locally milled trees; and the clear, clean waters of a Maine river—these are just a few of the many gifts that New England’s forests offer. Across the region, forests provide timber for construction, local jobs, wildlife habitat, clean air and water, and recreational opportunities. These benefits support a vibrant and thriving region, and New England Forestry Foundation (NEFF) works to protect them for future generations.
Founded in 1944, NEFF pursues innovative programs to advance conservation and forestry throughout New England. In partnership with land owners, NEFF has conserved more than 1.1 million acres of forest, including one out of every three acres of forestland protected in New England since 1999.
