Washington Farm Forestry Association (WFFA) is an organization of small forest land owners.
Our goals are:
- to provide educational programs for our members to help them manage their forest land better;
- to be a voice representing small forest land owners in Olympia;
- to promote fair taxation and regulation on the federal, state, and local government levels so that forest management can continue for generations to come;
- to increase public awareness of family-owned forests.

MEET A WFFA MEMBER
Tom Westergreen, along with his brothers Ed and Bill, are the 4th generation to manage the family forest in Whatcom County that was first purchased by their great-grandfather in 1888. (Cole, the 5th generation, is becoming involved.) Their parents Richard and Louise nurtured the forest and also nurtured the love of the forest in their 3 sons. Their story was published in the Stewards of the Land book in 2003.
