Keeping Pennsylvania growing means managing the forest resource. With 16.62 million acres of forestland, Pennsylvania has the most abundant hardwood forest in the Nation! The Pennsylvania Hardwoods Development Council (HDC) is responsible for the development, expansion, and promotion of the hardwoods industry. Wood is the greenest building material – it’s a renewable resource that stores carbon! From our forests come an array of products including lumber, veneer, cabinetry, flooring, pallets, furniture, baseball bats, maple syrup, drumsticks, heating pellets, and much more! The forest products industry employs over 60,000 Pennsylvanians and has a $21.8 billion annual direct impact to the state's economy. Learn more about the industry and forest and how the HDC and partners work to promote, support and enhance our resource. Working Forests Work!

AHS Centennial LogoCelebrating 100 years of fostering innovation and passion for gardening and horticultural excellence nationwide, the American Horticultural Society (AHS) serves as the country’s most respected and longstanding gardening organization.

The Pennsylvania Housing Finance Agency (PHFA) offers a variety of home loan products at competitive rates to help with your home purchase. Since down payment and closing costs are often the largest hurdle to homeownership, PHFA offers a small second loan to help cover those costs. We also have a loan product that can combine home repair costs with your mortgage, avoiding the need for two separate loans. Homebuyer education is available to buyers at no cost. The more you learn about PHFA’s home loans, the more you’ll like. Visit our website at www.PHFA.org/homebuyers, or call our Customer Solutions Center during weekday hours to have brochures mailed to you. That number is 1-855-827-3466; when you hear the recording start, dial “0” for a customer service representative. We appreciate your interest!

The Master Gardener Program provides interested individuals with extensive training in many phases of gardening. In return, participants volunteer to teaching horticultural information to the public based on university research and recommendations.
