The American Tree Farm System

Vermont Woodlands Association sponsors the Tree Farm Program in Vermont. Tree Farms range in size from small woodlots to large industrial forests. The goals of the Tree Farm Program are disseminating information about the benefits of proper forest management and establishing good forest management practices on as many acres as possible. The American Tree Farm System, first organized in 1941, is the Nation's oldest certifier of privately owned forestland. Tree Farm members share a unique commitment to protecting watersheds and wildlife habitat, conserving soil, and providing recreation; and at the same time producing wood products on a sustainable basis.
