Indiana Forest Alliance


The Indiana Forest Alliance (IFA), founded in 1996, is a non-profit, statewide organization dedicated to the long-term health and well-being of Indiana’s native forests. We are volunteers and staff working to protect and restore Indiana’s forests. IFA serves citizens, organizations, landowners, and communities with a wide range of interests in Indiana’s forests. We provide accurate information to the people of Indiana to involve them in efforts to protect Indiana’s forests and ensure their opportunities for input into decision-making that affects forests.  We also conduct scientific research on forest ecosystems to inform preservation and conservation decisions.

Our Forests for Indy project focuses on Indianapolis' urban forests.  Launched by IFA in 2018, Forests for Indy is the first-ever proactive, data-driven initiative to identify, assess and plan to preserve forests remaining in Indianapolis. IFA has identified and ranked 4,237 urban forests, including the top 100 that offer the most benefits in terms of heat, flood, and pollution mitigation; wildlife habitat; and neighborhood quality of life.
