Western Mass Wood

This website is a project of the Massachusetts Woodlands Institute (MWI), 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 theĀ Franklin Land Trust (FLT), 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.

This site is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Forest Service, award number: 17-DG-11420004-270.
