WELCOME

Maryland Forests Association, Inc. (MFA), is Maryland's voice for forest, wildlife, and natural resource management.  The MFA website is a tool to learn about Maryland's issues concerning forest resources, forest land ownership, forest management, and the forest products industry.

WE BELIEVE

That there's more to our forests than trees and that forest conservation is best accomplished through education; for ourselves and for all who benefit from our forest resources. Our "Faces of Forestry" public perception campaign is an effort to increase the awareness and understanding of the benefits of sustainable forest management in Maryland. All of the profile stories can be found on our BLOG.

FRAMING THE FUTURE WEBINARS
