The Massachusetts Woodlands Institute is a non-profit organization that encourages and assists landowners in responsibly managing their woodlands. We believe that taking an active role in managing your woods will benefit wildlife, the local community and economy, and can provide you with financial, recreational, and personal rewards.
MWI is subsidiary organization of the Franklin Land Trust, and is housed at shared offices in Shelburne Falls, MA. By working with FLT, we are able to offer expertise and assistance to landowners about permanently conserving their land, as well as managing and caring for the land. We host the Western Mass Wood website with searchable listings, stories and marketplace for local wood products.
