Healthy Forests, Healthy Communities is a non-profit, 501(c)(4) organization. It is supported by individuals and businesses who are passionate about improving the health of our forests and the future of our rural, forested communities. Originally founded in Roseburg, Oregon in 2013, we have grown and now advocate for active forest management through regional programs in the Pacific Northwest, Rocky Mountains and Great Lakes States.
We are a broad grassroots coalition that supports the need for active, sustainable forest management to provide stable county revenues and more jobs for our rural communities. We support balanced policies that promote rural economic opportunity while also maintaining the many benefits we have come to expect from our forests, including recreation and diverse wildlife populations. Our partners include local elected officials, business and labor groups, law enforcement, educators, tribes, sportsmen and outdoor groups, and more.
