Celebrating 31 years in 2020 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.
