Seed Funding for Community Forestry Business Alliance

A year ago, eleven sustainable forestry leaders and entrepreneurs from across the U.S. began conversations on how, as a group, they might better coordinate efforts, pool resources and knowledge, and stimulate market awareness and production capacity. Today, with generous support from the Citigroup Foundation, this group has launched the Community Forestry Business Alliance, a consortium to focus on the manufacturing and marketing of wood products made in ways that restore or maintain forest health while contributing to local community economic development. Sustainable Northwest is coordinating and leading this pioneering effort. We are currently recruiting new members from across the country to join in our efforts. In the Southeast, contact Alyx Perry at the Southern Forests Network,, 828-277-9008
