The Forest Landowners of California is the only organization representing the interests of the 30,000 family forest owners in California. The State of California, of all states, has the most stringent forest practice regulations affecting private land, and more regulations are being proposed each year.
It is vital for private timberland owners to take an interest in what is happening in this bellwether state. Their financial survival is at stake. New regulations in the last few years have added substantial costs in preparation of timber harvesting plans which must be approved by the state.
Forest Landowners of California was formed in 1975 to represent the interests of the non-industrial private timberland owners. FLC has provided an increasingly stronger voice in government decisions. Members have been actively working with the California Legislature and state regulatory agencies such as the Board of Forestry on regulatory matters affecting timberland owners.
