Membership in the Federation is open to woodland owners in Nova Scotia owning less then 5000 acres. An owner may be an individual, a legal taxable entity (i.e. business) or any organization of woodland owners whose purpose is to represent the collective interests of its members.Each member has one vote and is entitled to vote at any Federation meeting. Any Federation member may stand for election to the Board of Directors (elected at annual general meetings).

This nine person Board of Directors manages the activities of the Federation.
