American Tree Farm System

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.

The American Tree Farm System® (ATFS) includes 27 million acres of certified forestland managed by America's family forest owners who are meeting the highest standards of sustainability and managing their lands for water, wildlife, wood, and recreation.

ATFS is the largest and oldest sustainable family woodland system in America, internationally recognized, meeting strict third-party certification standards.

For more than 70 years, ATFS has enhanced the quality of America’s woodlands by giving forest owners the tools they need to keep their forests healthy and productive. Stemming the loss of America’s woodlands is vital to our country’s clean water and air, wildlife habitat, recreational activities, and producing the jobs, wood and paper products we all need.

ATFS is a program of the American Forest Foundation.
