Pike-Monroe Woodland Owners Group

The Pike‐Monroe Woodland Owners Group is a collaboration of landowners and practitioners working to keep our forests healthy and vibrant.

As owners of forests that provide high-quality wildlife habitat, water filtration, beautiful scenery, and some of the most sustainably‐produced wood products in the world, we understand that managing a woodland is no easy task.

We connect to share experiences and resources—and provide a voice for forests in northeast Pennsylvania.


Mission Statement

The mission of the Pike‐Monroe Woodland Owners Group is to connect the woodland owners of Pike and Monroe Counties and to share knowledge about managing, conserving, and sustaining our forests.


Goals of the WOG

1. Understand & enjoy our woodlands
2. Keep our forests healthy
3. Promote wildlife habitat, water quality, and forest recreation
4. Manage for sustainable commercial and noncommercial wood products.


The Pike‐Monroe Woodland Owners Group holds events throughout the year.

When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.
