Promoting Private Forests

2017 National Conference of Private Forest Landowners

Stewardship for Today, Sustainability for Tomorrow: It's Up to Us.

May 30 – June 2, Asheville, North Carolina

Where caretakers and stakeholders come out of the woods and office to learn, engage and spark ideas for a better working forest.

You can’t have engagement without information. And to be successful in stewardship of your resource, produce a timber income, and ensure a future legacy, you need both information and engagement. The FLA National Conference of Private Forest Landowners provides both.

An ideal venue to discover a full breadth of every aspect of owning, managing, investing, and passing to the next generation working forests. The conference provides relevant and timely information along with thought provoking sessions that engage forestry stakeholders across the supply chain, as well as NGOs and government land management agencies.

Always Relevant, Always Fresh, Always What You Need!

What people say about the conference

“I was very impressed with the quality of information I received at the Forest Landowners Conference. The speakers were phenomenal and the smaller sessions were very informative and engaging. Attending the conference gave us new insights on generational transfer and optimal management for stewardship and timber income.”

“I’ve attended many professional conferences and the FLA conference is by far one of the best. Excellent speakers and very timely topics during a time of regulatory uncertainty.”

“I found the educational sessions and networking opportunities to be very beneficial. It is important for private forest landowners to come together with supply chain stakeholders as well as government agency representatives to build collaboration and discuss market access issues as well as sustainably for the future of private forests. The FLA Conference does just that.”
