Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests

Founded by a handful of concerned citizens in 1901, the Society for the Protection of New Hampshire Forests is now one of the country's most effective statewide land conservation organizations.

Our mission statement, developed in 1904 is: "We are a forestry association seeking to perpetuate the forests of New Hampshire through their wise use and their complete reservation in places of special scenic beauty."

As a non-profit membership organization, the Forest Society is dedicated to protecting the state's most important landscapes while promoting the wise use of its renewable natural resources.

Our accomplishments include:

  • Helping to protect over one million acres of open space in the state.
  • Effectively promoting good land stewardship, through education and by example.
  • Advocating public policies that encourage the wise conservation of natural resources.

Our 10,000 members make us what we are today – a unique blend of visionary land trust, balanced environmental advocate and intelligent forestry association. We think it's a winning combination – for New Hampshire's beautiful landscapes, its caring people and for the many generations to come.
