Sustainable forestry doesn’t just happen in working forests. International Paper focuses on conserving the biodiversity and health of all forestland, including those that aren’t used to make products. We’re working with environmental advocates, government agencies, and other businesses to keep forests thriving.

Through Forestland Stewards, our conservation collaborative with the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, we’ve protected core habitats, including that of the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker. Launched in 2013, our Forestland Stewards Partnership helps to protect and enhance ecologically important forestlands and coastal savannas in ten southern states. Investments made through the partnership are projected to restore, enhance and protect 586,000 acres of native forest and wildlife habitat.
