Roughly a third of all forestland in the U.S. is owned by private individuals or families. Only about 20% of those owning forest parcels of 10 acres or larger are involved in land management options. The Sustaining Family Forests Initiative (SFFI), a joint program of the Program on Private Forests led by Global Institute Executive Director Mary Tyrrell, and the U.S. Forest Service, has been developing and workshopping techniques for reaching out to family forest owners using a social marketing apprach to inform them of their options. The program has just received a new $600,000 federal grant, which will allow the leaders to train more professionals, to hone their methods and expand their reach to other organizations.

For a professional that deals with forestry issues but lacks a degree in forestry or a science background, the Executive Education in Forestry was the most efficient means to gain that knowledge base."
Lincoln Bramwell, Chief Historian for USDA Forest Service
