New England, forestland is becoming increasingly fragmented, with forestland ownership shifting to higher income, often non-resident property owners. Lower income community members are increasingly squeezed out of forestland ownership and stewardship by high land costs. We envision a new kind of forest ownership that achieves two main goals: protecting forest health and allowing community members to own the carefully managed forest land. To meet the first goal, the property will be protected by covenants to ensure careful management in perpetuity:: Subdivision, development, and over-cutting are off-limits. To meet the second goal, we will sell shares in the land to local community members, many of whom could not, individually, afford forestland. Their purchase will be an investment that yields financial returns; and it will be an investment they can walk in, work with, and be proud of.
