Welcome to the WFE

The Western Forest Economists (WFE) is a non-profit group that welcomes membership from any interested party. For the last 50 years, we have meet each Spring for a three-day conference that focuses on forest economics. The conference is a great opportunity to discuss current research, issues, and trends. The WFE’s informal meeting format encourages discussion and interchange.
