Family-owned #forests represent one of the largest untapped opportunities for #climate action. Action to address our climate must increase--not decrease--the stewardship of our forests.

For many family forest owners, your land is your legacy. This #EarthDay we invite you to improve the overall health of your #forest, help fight the global #climate crisis and secure your legacy for generations to come. #EarthDayEveryDay
