International Paper’s conservation partnership with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF), known as Forestland Stewards, was created to conserve and restore southern forestlands. These forests provide critical habitats for endangered wildlife and economic opportunities for local communities.
Since 2013, International Paper has invested more than $19 million in project funding. These investments are leveraging more than $40 million in matching funds from federal, state, and private organizations, for a total conservation investment of more than $60 million. These projects, once fully implemented, will establish and enhance more than 525,000 acres of native forest and wildlife habitat, improve more than 470 miles of stream habitat, and engage nearly 16,000 private landowners through outreach and technical assistance to implement forest stewardship practices.
