ATFS Standards of Sustainability Review

ATFS Standards of Sustainability Review

Periodically, the American Tree Farm System Standards of Sustainability undergo review through an open, transparent process to ensure appropriate incorporation of public input, emerging developments in the forest management arena and to promote continuous improvement of the ATFS program and stewardship on America's family woodlands. During 2014, we are engaging in that process.

See the sections below for more information on how this process works and how you can participate.
