Promoting the Proper Management of Private Forests
To promote the growing of renewable forest resources on private lands, while
protecting environmental benefits and increasing public understanding of all
benefits of productive forestry.
ABOUT THE TREE FARM SYSTEM:
A Tree Farm is a privately owned forest managed to produce continuous crops
of trees with the added benefits of improved wildlife habitat, watershed
protection, outdoor recreation, and aesthetic value, and in general sustain the
biodiversity and natural resources of the ecosystem of which it is a part.
The Tree Farm System began in 1941 and is managed by the American Tree
Farm System under the sponsorship of the American Forest Foundation.
Michigan has over 1,500 certified Tree Farms that include more than 2.4 million
acres of forested land.
