Washington Farm Forestry Association (WFFA) is an organization of small forest landowners.

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 landowners 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.
