Comment now on revised Tree Farm certification standards

May 5, 2009 at 10:27 am Leave a comment

All properties certified through the American Tree Farm System are required to conform to the American Forest Foundation’s Standards of Sustainability for Forest Certification.

The AFF Standards focus on the issues critical to maintaining sustainable forest practices on private forestlands in the United States, such as reforestation, air, water and soil protection, fish, wildlife and biodiversity, and wood fiber harvest. These issues, among others, comprise the nine. The AFF Standards are developed independently of the ATFS certification program by an outside panel of stakeholders.

The AFF Standards are up for renewal this year.

The 60-day public comment period on the REVISED Standards of Sustainability for Forest Certification on Private Lands begins Friday, May 1, through June 29, 2009 at 5:00 PM (EDT).
