International Paper supports conservation programs in the coastal Carolinas, the Cumberland Plateau, the Piney Woods of Texas and Louisiana, and the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley. We work to restore and enhance many different forests in support of numerous terrestrial and aquatic wildlife including the red-cockaded woodpecker, the Louisiana black bear and the eastern hellbender.
International Paper and NFWF began working together to restore and enhance the forested ecosystems of the Southeast in 2013. The partnership has achieved many significant accomplishments, including establishing or enhancing more than 600,000 acres of native forest and wildlife habitat.
This conservation partnership supports NFWF’s eﬀorts to help species that call forests their home in four major regions of the Southeast: the coastal Carolinas, the Cumberland Plateau, the Piney Woods of Texas and Louisiana, and the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley. The fund works with both public land managers and private working forest landowners to plant, manage and protect key forest habitats.
Launched in 2013, the Forestland Stewards Partnership between International Paper and the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) protects and enhances ecologically important forestlands and coastal savannas in ten southern states.Learn More
