In 1971, the North Carolina Forestry Association’s Self Insurer’s Fund was started, with plans to be a major force in the workers compensation insurance market, specializing in the wood products industry. It pioneered stable, competitive rates and introduced safety programs designed to keep our insureds safe in dangerous working environments. In 1999, the North Carolina Forestry Association’s Self-Insurer Fund became the North Carolina Forestry Association’s Mutual Insurance Company. Shortly after, in 2000, the name changed for a final time to Forestry Mutual Insurance Company. The Mutual is owned by the policyholders and guarantees them outstanding value through stable, competitive rates and a myriad of extensive loss control services. To keep this promise, the Mutual has the flexibility needed to adapt to changing economic conditions. The Mutual strives to take advantage of new opportunities as a business, while keeping the safety and success of our policyholders at the forefront of our mission.
