Tree Farm Standards 2015

Meeting Description:
This year the American Tree Farm System is taking a look at our Standards of Sustainability per the PEFC requirements for certification. In January to March there was a public comment period on the Standards as they are now. An Independent Standards Review Panel (ISRP) looked at those comments and has come out with a revised standard. Now we have opened a second public comment period on this revised standard, as well as the accompanying Guidance Document. Sarah Crow and ISRP Chair Steven Sinclair will lead this webinar going over the revised standards and any changes that have been suggested. This webinar will be valuable for Tree Farmers new and old, as well as any one interested in sustainable forestry in America!
