The Forest History Society is led by President & CEO Tania Munz. Eight dedicated staff members located in Durham, North Carolina, conduct the daily work of the Society.

The organization's nonpartisan Board of Directors is comprised of prominent business and forestry leaders, educators and scholars, and private landowners. They all share a steadfast commitment to the mission of the Forest History Society and to the belief that the promotion of forest and conservation history is essential to understanding the relationship between man and forests.

By understanding our past, we shape our future.
