What Are Forests For?


For wilderness recreation, for all of us, and future generations. As habitat for Indiana’s amazing biodiversity. For sequestering 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 Governor Eric Holcomb asking him to set aside at least 10% of state forests from commercial logging. See infographic here.

5) Sign-up (at right) to get e-updates on forest advocacy news and action items.

6) Follow IFA on Facebook, Instagram and/or Twitter (see icons on right side of page).
