Kentucky Woodland Owners Association
“Bringing people and woodland sustainability together”
Kentucky’s 467,000 private woodland owners can work together to enhance the quality of our woodlands, solve problems we share in common and improve the wealth of the commonwealth by advocating sound government policy. KWOA is a state affiliate of the National Woodland Owners Association, providing members access to proven resources and successful programs.
We have a diverse membership whose interests in woodland ownership include timber production, fish and wildlife management, recreation, and resource conservation. Woodland ownership ranges from those with several acres to those with more than a thousand. Membership includes those who reside on their woodland property as well as absentee owners.
