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.
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.
