Dogwood Alliance

We serve the forests and people of the Southern US. Together we fight against forest destruction and community injustice. We stand up to big business, support families, and protect Southern forests.

Forests, clean air, clean water, and storm protection are vital. We need them for thriving communities and economies. We connect the dots between forests, climate, and community justice.

Stopping threats isn’t enough. Let’s build a future that values wild forests, healthy communities, and human life over corporate profits.
