Welcome to the Central Coast Forest Association

The Central Coast Forest Association is a non-profit alliance of small forest landowners, forestry professionals and forest-oriented businesses with a close affinity to the woods, mountains, streams and wildlife of the Central California Coast.  Our purpose is to uphold and preserve our values, our property rights, and our way of life.

To advance this objective, CCFA will:

Interact with community, political, and environmental interests as a voice for forest landowners.

Understand the news, law and technology of forestry and apply this knowledge for the benefit and protection of forest landowners.

Inform members of matters affecting their lands and forests.

Take political and legal action to defend the rights and property of all Central Coast forest land owners.
