From supplying forest products to filtering stormwater, state foresters know trees and forests do amazing things for American communities—rural and urban alike. At this year's annual meeting, NASF will be celebrating the many social, economic, and health benefits provided by trees and forests and the dedicated professionals who protect them from perennial threats like pests and wildfire.
NASF annual meetings are small and intimate, averaging around 200 attendees. Many who join us are senior-level decision-makers who can make a difference for your organization; others include industry and government leaders who drive the nation’s forest management, urban forestry, and wildland fire management activities. The 2018 meeting's venue in northwest Montana is sure to provide a spectacular showcase of a range of issues important to state foresters and you—our valued partners.
In June 2018, the nation's 59 state and territorial foresters sent letters to the leadership of the Senate and House Appropriations Subcommittees on Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies underscoring the value of the Joint Fire Science program. You can read the letter in full here.
