Stewardship Handbook for Family Forest Owners

The National Association of State Foresters deeply respects and appreciates the role and contribution of family forests in creating and sustaining the nation’s beauty and bounty. NASF has written this handbook for the nation’s nearly 10 million non-industrial forest and woodlot owners, with particular focus on those of you who are in the early stages of considering how best to care for your forest and become a successful steward.

NASF is a non-profit organization that represents the directors of forestry agencies from the fifty states, eight U.S. territories and associated states, and the District of Columbia. Through public-private partnerships, NASF seeks to discuss, develop, sponsor and promote programs and activities which will advance the practice of sustainable forestry, the conservation and protection of forest lands and associated resources and the establishment and protection of forests in the urban environment.
