Why should you consider joining the NHTOA?

Here are just a few of the many benefits that membership in the New Hampshire Timberland Owners Association brings:

  • Showcasing the Industry: Our quarterly magazine for members, The Timber Crier, contains page after page of features about forestry and forestry operations throughout New Hampshire, as well as important state and national news on forest management issues, current market information, and upcoming events.

  • News You Need: Forest Fax, the NHTOA’s frequent e-mail newsletter, is filled with up-to-the-minute information about what is impacting New Hampshire's forest community.

  • Industry Education: The NHTOA’s workshops, forums, and field days, held several times every year, provide opportunities to learn about forestry issues and skills and to network with industry colleagues. (Some workshops will have a reduced cost with membership.)

  • Advocacy: The NHTOA represents the forestry industry on many statewide committees and coalitions. The NHTOA works hard to build awareness among state and federal policymakers about your interests.

  • Spreading the Word: The NHTOA pushes several marketing efforts every year that are designed to spread the message of sustainable management (good forestry) and build interest about New Hampshire's forests.

  • Public Education: Every year, the NHTOA educates children about New Hampshire’s forests, provides young adults with information about work opportunities within the forest community, and teaches adults how to work safer and more efficiently in the woods.

  • Awards and Honors: The NHTOA’s awards program, a central feature of our Annual Meeting, rewards good work in New Hampshire’s forests and celebrates the links today’s industry holds with the rich history of forestry in the Granite State.
