Western forests must be actively managed to ensure ecological, economic and social sustainability.

Addressing the complex issue of wildland fire requires effective and safe response, restoring and maintaining resilient landscapes and creating fire-adapted communities.

Responsible management of Western forests positively impacts not only forest ecosystems, but people, communities and economies.

Forests play a complex and important role in both mitigating and adapting to the wide-ranging effects of climate change.

Clean and abundant water in the West is the direct result of healthy, resilient forests.

The Council of Western State Foresters is the leading voice and a trusted source of information and expertise on the most pressing issues facing Western and Pacific Island forests. Through collaboration, outreach and advocacy, CWSF works to conserve, protect and enhance our forests for today and generations to come.
