Becoming a Member
become a member of the Tree Farm System, you must own 10 or more acres
of forest land and manage it in a manner that meets the American Forest
Foundation’s Standards of Sustainability for Forest Certification.
Because Washington’s Forest Practice regulations are stringent, you
will normally meet the Standards if you are following state
regulations. Sound sustainable forest management begins with knowing
what you have on your forest land, determining your objectives, then
documenting this in your management plan.
You also must have
a written forest management plan before your property can be certified.
If you do not currently have a written plan, there are several ways you can obtain one.
If you are interested in being certified, please print the form below, complete and mail it to:
