The purpose of Our Association It is the purpose of this organization to provide information, exchange of ideas, and to educate its members and others about the methods and benefits of proper forest management.
This is accomplished by sponsoring educational seminars, woodswalks on member's woodlands emphasizing different aspects of best practice forest management, regular business meetings and social events to encourage interactions between association members.
The NCFLA has a close association with Pennsylvania DCNR Bureau of Forestry and Penn State Cooperative Extension. A Pennsylvania State DCNR service Forester and a Penn State forestry advisor are an integral, functioning part of the NCFLA who provide guidance, advice, organization, contact with the broader forest community and schedule regular classes and seminars on forestry topics of interest.
Members of this organization experience the excitement of expanding their forestry knowledge and skills, a sense of companionship with people of similar interests, satisfaction of promoting the health of Penn's woods and fun.
