The fate of 1 million acres of our nation’s most important forest lands is in your hands.
Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests could be next on the cutting board.
The next 20-year forest management plan for Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests will be released soon, and it could have a dramatic impact on the health of our public lands.
Will you protect our national forests? Our goal is to raise $30,000 before the end of the year. Whether it’s $10 or $1,000, your gift makes sure our team of experts has the resources to fight for a better forest management plan.

MountainTrue has a record of success when it comes to fighting for our forests.
In the 80s and early 90s, MountainTrue (then the Western North Carolina Alliance) collected more than 16,000 signatures opposing the practice of clearcutting — and the resulting petition was the length of three football fields. Through our collective action, we pressured the Forest Service to cut the maximum allowable harvest in half, stopped the practice of clearcutting in Nantahala and Pisgah National Forests, and put water quality protections and old-growth forest restoration in place.
Join MountainTrue and strengthen our collective voice. With your help we can:
- be a voice for the wild and roadless parts of the forest,
- protect existing old-growth forests,
- educate and inform the public with professional analysis,
- provide technical comments to the Forest Service, and
- organize public participation in meetings and comment periods, making it difficult for the Forest Service to ignore the people who speak for the trees.
Thank you for standing with our beloved national forests. Remember, you can make a small donation that will have a big impact by signing up for monthly giving.
