National Association of State Foresterslast updated: January 2015

Established in 1920, the National Association of State Foresters is a non-profit organization comprised of the directors of forestry agencies in the states, territories and the District of Columbia of the United States. State foresters manage and protect state and private forests, which encompass two-thirds of the nation's forests.

The mission of the National Association of State Foresters is to represent State and Territorial Forester interests by influencing forest policy and leading efforts to promote healthy and sustainable trees and forests.

State and private lands provide public benefits such as clean air, clean water, wildlife habitat, outdoor recreation, and about seventy percent of the nation’s wood supply. The management of these lands across the rural-to-urban spectrum is vital to our nation’s health and economy. State Foresters have the primary authority to help local governments and nearly ten million family forest landowners manage and protect state and private forests under a wide variety of goals and circumstances.
