Welcome! The Ohio Tree Farm program is the application of the American Tree Farm System (ATFS) to Ohio and is operated by volunteers through the Ohio Tree Farm Committee.
To promote the growing of renewable forest resources on private land while protecting environmental benefits and increasing public understanding of all benefits of productive forests.
The four segments of our sign emphasize this integrated approach to the management of our woodlands:
1) Wood 2) Water 3) Wildlife 4) Recreation
Management of woodlands by the ATFS standards leads to a designation of a 'Certified Family Forest' that indicates the Tree Farmer's goals are to provide a renewable resource in a sustainable manner while maintaining a healthy forest that protects water, wildlife, and recreational values.
