what we do

Protecting land for nature, land for people and land for good.


How we use our land creates our future. From local food at the farmer’s market, parks and urban forests to affordable housing in vibrant communities, recreation opportunities, and working farms and forests – it all comes back to people and the land. 

Community Real Estate and Planning:

Forterra invests in towns and cities across the state. We leverage our land holdings and work in partnership with towns, cities, developers, and communities to improve infrastructure, housing, and cultural institutions.

Land COnservation and Stewardship:

Forterra’s landscape-scale strategy ensures the protection of critical ecological assets, forests, farmlands, parks and trails. We collaborate with landowners, Tribes, state agencies, municipalities and other partners to purchase land and conservation easements.  We manage more than 17,000 acres across the state, to sustain ecological value and mitigate the causes and effects of climate change. 

Policy and Innovation:

Forterra’s comprehensive, leveraged approach to policy and programs ensures that we can meet the moment to help tackle the climate crisis and support equitable, green and prosperous communities. We apply a breadth of technical skills to tackle problems we are uniquely equipped to solve.
