ISF Programs


To fulfill our mission, we conduct programs in three mutually reinforcing areas:


Sustainable Forestry Program:
ISF monitors the success of sustainable forest practices, sponsors conferences and workshops, provides educational information, technical assistance and publications to non-industrial forest landowners and forest management practitioners.


Community Economic Development Program:
ISF provides marketing, technical assistance, referrals, and strategic planning support to the Sustainable Hardwoods Industry Cluster.


Sustainable Markets, Trade and Policy:
ISF supports the development of effective policy and market-based strategies for non-industrial landowners practicing SmartWood and Forest Stewardship Council certified resource management.
