The nonprofit organization, a concept brought to the New World by European settlers, has thrived in the United States, nowhere more so than in New England. Forestry nonprofits have performed significant service in New England for more than a century, providing supplementary resources, creating innovative programs, mustering political support, and taking risks. Especially important is their ability to connect government with the public it serves. Those who work elsewhere in the country in natural resources–whether in the for-profit, nonprofit, or public sector–can look to New England programs for ideas and inspiration.
