Community Supported Forest Guide

Community Supported Forest Guide

A new local guide, "South Mountain Community Supported Forests," is now available. This 32-page publication has listings of forest consultants, cabinet makers, millworks, lumber suppliers, wood working companies and many other diverse economies that utilize our local forest resources.   Like small farms, small forest product operations serve a vital role in our communities. When you buy locally, your money stays within the community, bolstering the local economy.  Community Supported Forests in the South Mountain landscape is an effort to build a region-wide focus on forests and the role they play in our quality of life.

This new publication is a project of the Central Pennsylvania Conservancy in partnership with Penn State School of Forest Resources, PA DCNR Department of Forestry, Capital Resource Conservation and Development (RC&D) Area Council, and the South Mountain Partnership. The publication is available through the Cumberland Valley Visitors Bureau, Franklin County Visitors Bureau, Appalachian Trail Office in Boiling Springs, Pine Grove Furnace State Park, and Central PA Conservancy office as well as some of the local mills and woodworking shops. You can also get a copy by downloading it at the Central PA Conservancy website ( or by contacting CPC at (phone: 717-241-4360).
