Growing Stewardship from the Roots
The American Tree Farm System® (ATFS) includes 27 million acres of certified forestland managed by America's family forest owners who are meeting the highest standards of sustainability and managing their lands for water, wildlife, wood, and recreation.
ATFS is the largest and oldest sustainable family woodland system in America, internationally recognized, meeting strict third-party certification standards.
For more than 70 years, ATFS has enhanced the quality of America’s woodlands by giving forest owners the tools they need to keep their forests healthy and productive. Stemming the loss of America’s woodlands is vital to our country’s clean water and air, wildlife habitat, recreational activities, and producing the jobs, wood and paper products we all need.
ATFS is a program of the American Forest Foundation.
