With the new American Tree Farm System’s (ATFS) Standards of Sustainability, all Maine Tree Farm Inspecting Foresters will need to participate in inspector training to begin completing inspections to the new Standards.
April 23, 9 am – 12 pm
The American Tree Farm System (ATFS) was founded in 1941 and is now the oldest and largest forest conservation, certification, and advocacy program in the United States. The first two Tree Farms in Maine were dedicated in 1952, and today, over 1,400 family forest owners are part of the Maine Tree Farm System.
The American Tree Farm System is a program for woodland owners committed to sustainably managing their woods for wood, water, wildlife, and recreation. Maine Tree Farm receives direction from a volunteer Committee of dedicated Forestry Professionals and Tree Farmers.
