Professional with expertise in this field

I had the great pleasure of working for AFF for 5+ years - mid 2000 through early 2006. While many of the players in the national office have changed, the strength of this organization continues to lie with its grass roots members and partners in the field. From its "salt of the earth" award winning Tree Farmers, to the state Tree Farm Committee volunteers, to the tried and true Tree Farm Inspectors, to the dedicated volunteers and professionals carrying out the Project Learning Tree program with our nation's youth. This is a proven program worthy of our (your) support.

We own a tree farm in Wisconsin and have appreciated the resources of AFF over the past 5 years. The organization offers many levels of support from forest management to educational programs to networking. The dedication of AFF to the needs of tree farmers and the special nature of the role forests play in the economy and environment is unique. We appreciate the support of the AFF.

I am a small tree farmer. I find AFF to be very responsive to my requests and needs. They are on the cutting edge of ecological advocacy. Anyone involved in forestry or that just LOVES trees is well served by AFF. Mike Bone
