"I work to protect the forest as my teacher and not just a provider of resources." - Dr. Thomas RaShad Easley
For over years, Dogwood Alliance has stood with the forests and people of the South. Based in the mountains of Asheville, North Carolina, Dogwood has transformed the forestry and paper-buying practices of some of the largest companies in the world. Today we work at the international level to stop the burning of Southern forests for European electricity and to bring forests to the forefront of climate solutions.
You are what makes the work of protecting our Southern forests possible. Come celebrate all that we’ve done and all the amazing things we have yet to do together.
