What Professional Foresters Say
Pros image

The Society of American Foresters (SAF) is the national organization of professional foresters representing the forestry profession in the United States. As the largest professional society for foresters in the world, SAF advances the science, education, technology, and practice of forestry to ensure the continued health and use of forests to benefit society. SAF members include natural resource professionals in public and private settings, researchers, managers, practitioners, administrators, educators, and students.

The professional forester members of SAF—through a strong foundation of science and experience—have written 2-3 page “position statements,” which address a number of contemporary forest issues. These position statements are crafted with prudent consideration of environmental, economic, and social concerns. Links to these professional forestry positions may be found below.
