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 protecting and restoring Indiana’s native forests. We’re concerned about the 400% INCREASE in commercial logging of our state forests since 2002.  Are you?
