As a woodland owner, you know that your woods are part of you -- and your family. Keeping them healthy is important, which means that learning about strategies to manage your woods is the best way to ensure they stay a part of your family for generations to come.
Whether you are new to owning woods, or have enjoyed your property for many years, the American Tree Farm System can help you do what's best for your woods by giving you the tools and information you need. Whether it's small, incremental steps to help you learn more about your woods, connecting you to a forester in our wide network of professionals, or updating your sustainable management plan, we're here to help.
This tool and resource will be constantly updated. Currently, we have tools and resources on:
