American Forest Foundation

TOP REASONS
FOREST OWNERS
OWN LAND:
10

CHALLENGES THAT NEW OR UNENGAGED
FAMILY LANDOWNERS FACE WHEN
CONSIDERING FOREST STEWARDSHIP

WILDLIFE
LACK OF AWARENESS:

BEAUTY

The majority of landowners are not aware
of the programs and resources available
to help them care for their land.11

LACK OF EXPERTISE:

Only 20% of landowners have
received formal advice from a
forester.12

LEGACY
PRIVACY

TIME-CONSUMING PROCESS:

It can take anywhere from 2-6 months
to get a forest management plan
written by a professional.13

HIGH COSTS:

For example, in the West, it costs
$2,500 an acre to remove debris
and trees that fuel wildfires.14

THE AMERICAN FOREST FOUNDATION IS HELPING MORE
LANDOWNERS OVERCOME THE CHALLENGES TO STEWARDSHIP
AFF is working to protect and measurably increase the clean water, wildlife habitat, natural carbon sequestration and
sustainable wood supplies that come from family-owned forests by engaging more landowners in active forest stewardship.
Through innovative solutions, partnerships, technology and expanding programs like the American Tree Farm System, AFF
is removing barriers that prevent forest owners from caring for their land, and helping them make a positive conservation
impact now and in the future.
