​​Celebrating 30 years of maintaining, preserving, and enjoying woodlands

The Westmoreland Woodlands Improvement Association provides a forum for all those who have an interest in woodlands. WWIA recognizes woodlands as renewable resources, and encourages their management for aesthetics, timber, water quality and control, wildlife habitat, plant propagation and recreation. Members of WWIA learn about productive ways to use forest resources while preserving their natural beauty.

Raul Chiesa and Janet Sredy own forest land in Forward Township, Allegheny County. They are certified tree farmers and were recognized in 2015 as the National Outstanding Tree Farmers of the Year.  Read their recent Op-Ed: Protect Pennsylvania's Forests
