ATFS Verification Database

The American Tree Farm System offers an online system to verify Tree Farm certification. 

The realtime, web-based system allows mills, wood dealers and other industry representatives to verify the ATFS certification status of individual properties across the United States. Subscriber fees are based on number of facilities. To login, visit


Subscription rates for mills, dealers and others

A subscription covers annual, unlimited use for each facility and its network of wood procurement and verification.

  • One subscription for a single mill is $500/yr.
  • Any additional mill will be an additional $500/yr, up to three mills. 
  • For companies wishing to subscribe for more than three mills, there is a flat fee of $1500/year
  • Wood dealer yards and consulting firms may purchase a single subscription for $400/yr.   


Using the Database

Subscribers will be given password access to the on-line verification system. The password can be shared by the subscriber to appropriate verifiers within the facility’s procurement network. However, supporting facility procurement entities such as wood buyers and other extra-company wood consolidation entities need to subscribe separately. 

Fees are assessed yearly on the date the contract was signed by the subscriber.  Passwords expire at year’s end and companies must renew in order to continue to use the OVS.
