Forever-wild conservation is among the most cost-efficient and immediate actions we can take to confront rapid climate chaos and biodiversity collapse.

Recent studies confirm the incredible ability of old, wild forests to absorb carbon. Scientists have reported the importance of allowing forests to mature—a process called “Proforestation.” These forests are better at storing carbon than any technology, and aren’t powered by fossil fuels! (As Northeast Wilderness Trust Advisor and 350.org founder, Bill McKibben says, “Also, they’re beautiful.”)

Unmanaged forests offer additional benefits: preventing extinction, allowing life to evolve alongside a changing climate, and connecting wildlife corridors for far-ranging species.

The window is narrowing, and together we must act quickly. Every forest Northeast Wilderness Trust protects as wilderness today will become an old-growth forest of tomorrow.

The Business Alliance program offers businesses a way to make a difference for nature: saving wild places for future generations.

Featured Partner

Saltwoods creates beautiful handcrafted furniture and is committed to using responsibly resourced materials with minimum impact on the environment. That is not just a slogan but a practice that owner Dan Crossman takes seriously. Dan has been a business partner of Northeast Wilderness Trust since 2019 by donating a percentage of Saltwoods’ profits on a quarterly basis.

“I wanted to…support the restoration and preservation of wilderness. It was important to me that the Wilderness Trust was conserving trees that would only grow older over time; they are the only regional land trust with that focus.”
