Key Facts

How does NEFF work to accomplish our mission?

  • We conserve forestland for future generations through purchases, gifts, and bequests of land and easements.
  • We actively manage NEFF-owned lands as demonstration and education forests, applying advanced practices in sustainable forestry and modeling tools and techniques that private landowners may wish to adopt.
  • We advocate for policies and incentives that encourage and sustain private forestland ownership, ensuring that landowners have economically viable alternatives to selling their land for development.
  • We keep 143 NEFF lands open to the public as Community Forests, with no charge for admission, ensuring New Englanders have access to all the recreational opportunities that forests provide.
  • We are a resource for forestland owners in our region, helping them to achieve their own land management and legacy objectives.
  • We educate landowners and the general public about the importance of forestry through outreach and programming.
  • We steward conservation easements that have been entrusted to us, ensuring that landowners’ conservation intents are sustained in accordance with their expressed wishes.
  • We are future-focused, and committed to innovation and integrity. NEFF helps prepare the region for a future where forestry is increasingly important, not only to keep forests healthy in the face of climate change, but also as a part of a global environmental solution to climate change. We engage in numerous strategic initiatives to expand the region’s land protection capacity, further forest education, and ensure that NEFF fulfills its mission.
  • We endorse and partner with organizations and supporters to work towards the Harvard Forest Wildlands and Woodlands vision to conserve 30 million acres of New England forest.
