MFA Believes
  • Forests can be managed to supply consumer products, such as lumber, veneer, paper products, furniture, edible foods and much more...
  • At the same time, forests can provide non-consumptive benefits, such as wildlife habitat, clean air, quality water, soil protection, recreation and aesthetic values...
  • That information and incentives are more efficient and effective than regulations in promoting good forest practices.
Michigan Forest Association also helps sponsor the Michigan Forest Foundation, a non-profit corporation founded in 1988 to receive tax deductible donations to further forest management education and wise use of all our natural resources. Michigan Forest Foundation publishes Green Gold: Michigan Forest History magazine and a video of the same title, cooperates with Michigan Forest Resource Alliance on classroom education and mails educational materials periodically to over 200 classrooms.
