Rhode Island Forest Conservators Organization




People of all ages benefit from
RIFCO's many programs and projects.

RIFCO is a non-profit forest conservation organization, whose members are primarily forest landowners and other like-minded conservationists, dedicated to the protection and wise use of Rhode Island's woodland resources.

In representing Rhode Island's woodland owners, RIFCO has as its objectives:

  • To promote the stewardship of Rhode Island's wooded lands and watersheds, aesthetic and recreational amenities, forest products, clean water, clean air, and varied wildlife.
  • To assist the members of the organization with information and education on woodland management and to serve as a medium where woodland owners can share ideas and resources.
  • To promote awareness of a healthy forest's role in improving environmental conditions by supporting rural community tree care programs and activities.
  • To protect the heritage of our state's woodlands for the future by promoting effective land use planning.
  • To promote equitable statewide assessment of farm, forest, and open-space land.
  • To stay abreast of legislative action affecting Rhode Island's forests, and to serve as a medium of information exchange between the public, state agencies, legislature, and wood industries.
  • To be an open forum for woodland owners, resource professionals, and concerned citizens to discuss legislation, issues, goals, and methods necessary to accomplish the organization's purpose and objectives.
