Thank You to Wildfire Responders

The Northwest Chapters of the Society of American Foresters wants to extend our gratitude to chapter members, the forestry community, and first responders who are responding to the ongoing catastrophic wildfires. You are placing yourself between the fire and our families, our forests, our homes, and our livelihoods. Thank you for enduring long, hot, and unpredictable days. Thank you working in these challenging conditions.

Help Us Showcase Sustainable Forestry in Washington State


Do you have a stream restoration project you're proud of?  A favorite grove of trees?  An example of stellar wildlife habitat you helped a tree farmer create?

Submit a photo of your accomplishments or favorite view of your tree farm for the Washington State Tree Farm-Washington State Society of American Foresters 2021 Calendar.  The sale of these calendars will enable these organizations to continue supporting sustainable forestry in our state.
