About us

My Sierra Woods is a partnership between local organizations and the American Forest Foundation (AFF), the leading non-profit organization that works with family forest landowners.

Our goal is to protect and restore the conditions of family forest lands throughout northern California. We do this by empowering landowners to mitigate catastrophic wildfire risk and restore forest health through fuels reduction and reforestation projects.
