What Are Forests For?


For wilderness recreation, for all of us, and future generations. As habitat for Indiana’s amazing biodiversity. As storers of carbon. As eco-tourism assets that make Indiana great. As places of solace and beauty.

The Indiana Forest Alliance’s mission is to protect and restore Indiana’s native hardwood forests through science-based advocacy.  

There has been a 400% increase in commercial logging in our public forests since 2002. If you’re concerned, here’s how you can help.


1) Volunteer with the Indiana Forest Alliance.

2) Become an Indiana Forest Alliance member.

3) View a short video about our imperiled forests.

4) Write to your senator and ask him to support Senate Bill 420. Senate Bill 420 would preserve 10% of Indiana’s public forests by protecting them from commercial logging.

5) Sign and share our State Wild Areas petition.

6) Sign-up (at right) to receive our e-communications and action alerts.
