Our mission is to provide active leadership in forest protection, forest management, forest inventory, and effective forest information distribution, necessary for Mississippi's sustainable forest-based economy.

The Mississippi Forestry Commission (MFC) has been proud of our service to the public and protection of the state’s valuable forest resources since 1926. Committed to delivering quality services and assistance to both rural and urban landowners, the MFC looks forward to the continued privilege of caring for Mississippi’s trees, forests, and natural resources.
