in News

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The American Forest Foundation (AFF) announced Tuesday the expansion of the Family Forest Carbon Program (FFCP), a partnership with The Nature Conservancy (TNC), into Ohio.

The program will equip family landowners with financial and technical support to improve the health, value, and resilience of their forests.

Approximately 84% of Ohio’s forests are privately owned, and nearly half are owned in parcels of 50 acres or less, making family forest owners a critical partner in stewarding the long-term health and wellbeing of the state’s natural resources.
