Forests perform many important environmental functions and contribute to our biological wealth. Pennsylvania’s forests are also an important renewable natural resource and include some of the nation’s most commercially valuable hardwood species. They are not only a source of aesthetic beauty, but also of economic viability and employment for thousands of residents. Understanding the benefits our forests provide and taking stock of our forest resources is necessary for ensuring its sustainability for future generations.
The Cumberland Woodland Owners Association is an organization of forestland owners and others interested in forestry issues in south central Pennsylvania.
