Heartwood is a cooperative network of grassroots groups, individuals and businesses dedicated to the health and well-being of our nation's hardwood forests and their interdependent plant, animal and human communities. Heartwood protects forests and supports community activism through advocacy, education and citizen empowerment. Heartwood's three program areas are:
