What We Do

The Nature Conservancy advances innovative and sustainable forest management solutions at the scale of the problem – global to local – for the benefit of both people and nature.

Global Efforts
Restoring North America's Forests

Collaborative Forest Demonstration Projects

The Nature Conservancy is demonstrating the value of forest restoration at 13 projects across the country with the Forest Service. We are sharing lessons learned at these demonstration projects with a coalition of partners working to improve the pace of forest restoration.

Maintaining Fire’s Natural Role
The Nature Conservancy is facilitating the Fire Learning Network, a 10-year old cooperative program with the Forest Service and Department of the Interior to restore our nation’s forests and grasslands and make communities safer from fire.

Protecting Forest Health
We are raising awareness among policy makers and the public about invasive insects and pathogens, and working to prevent their introduction into forests.

Community Forestry
We work with forest-dependent communities, such as those in Maine's Katahdin Forest and British Columbia's Great Bear Rainforest, to sustain and manage timber and non-timber resources.

Forest Certification
We support the use and development of forest certification as a market-based tool to ensure and recognize sound management practices.
