Our ethos is ‘Members First’ working on all issues of sustainable forest management. We are a unique members’ resource that shares industry experience and best practice and is run by forest owners for the benefit of forest owners.
We are a Co-operative with a vision, working towards a prosperous, inclusive resilient forestry industry. We catalyse the rapid changing needs of a rural farming community across sectors by working with all those interested in forestry and general farming.
