Why become a member?

Owning woodland is fun and rewarding. But we know it is not always easy to find the information you are looking for or get the help you need. Since 1975, we have been the organization that works to help, support and represent the interests of small woodland owners.

Our name has changed! Our name has changed!

As of our Annual Meeting on January 11th, 2017, the Small Woodland Owners Association became the Maine Woodland Owners. This change in name reflects a desire to have a more succinct name that fully describes the organization and one that will be more attuned and attractive to both current and new landowners. Associated with the new name is a unique, updated logo.
