ATFS, SAF, and ACF Partner for Better Forests
The Partners for Better Forests initiative is a collaborative effort between the American Tree Farm System (ATFS), the Society of American Foresters (SAF), and the Association of Consulting Foresters (ACF). The initiative aims to increase the number of engaged Tree Farm inspectors across the United States providing landowners with tools needed for on-the-ground support and promote better forest stewardship.
Because members of ACF and SAF have traditionally been those who have volunteered their time to work as Tree Farm inspectors and committee members, Partners for Better Forests is rewarding participating foresters with membership dues support to their respective professional association.
In return for completing two reinspections or two initial inspections, the program will give foresters $100 to be applied toward the annual dues of ACF or SAF. The money will be paid directly to SAF or ACF and will result in a $100 dues reduction for the member forester.
