Tiffany Woods

As the Southeast Director of Private Lands Forestry for the National Wildlife Federation, Tiffany Woods spearheads programs that intertwine the conservation of forested habitats with the economic and ecological needs of private landowners across the Southeast. With a Master’s degree from the University of Georgia (UGA) Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources and an undergraduate degree from the UGA College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences, she has two decades of hands-on experience in forestry, prescribed fire, landowner engagement, and community resilience. Her work emphasizes collaborative conservation, recognizing that the most effective environmental stewardship successes occurs when diverse organizations, partners and individuals unite together for a common goal.

The Southeast Forestry Program has seen the implementation of projects that restore the iconic longleaf pine ecosystem on private lands and most recently, community-owned forests. Tiffany co-leads “Longleaf for All”, a working group for America’s Longleaf Restoration Initiative, which is creating a movement of awareness and positive change for historically underserved landowners, professionals and students in the historic longleaf pine range. Tiffany's vision extends to large-scale initiatives focused on restoring native forest landscapes while directly addressing barriers of access, inclusivity and equity. Bridging the gap between conservation goals and the interests of landowners has been a hallmark of her career.
