The Alabama Forest Resources Center is a land trust working to help private landowners conserve forest lands using conservation easements and other tools.

Our vision is for Alabama to continue to serve as a working and sustainable rural landscape of national and international importance, in which ecological, economic and recreational values are interrelated. In order to protect this large landbase and its ecological heritage, landowners, local governments and citizens must recognize that their prosperity and individual goals are more likely to be successfully achieved if the traditional land uses of the region are valued as a whole and the land is not fragmented.
