Forest Management Plans
The RI Tree Farm Committee (RITFC) will be assisting Tree Farmers in updating their forest management plans to meet the new American Forest Foundation (AFF) standards.
- Press Release
Revised standards for the American Tree Farm System (ATFS)
- ATFS 2010-2015 Standards of Sustainability
- ATFS 2010 Management Plan Addendum
As of January 1, 2011, all Tree Farm plans must meet these new standards, and existing plans that are not yet outdated can be simply revised by submitting a completed management Plan Addendum that addresses the additional required standards. As part this process, the RITFC will contact each Tree Farmer during 2011 to offer a personal review, either at one of the workshops or by an inspecting forester.
Check your plan! Is it up to date? Have you reviewed it with your forester lately?
