The Society of American Foresters (SAF) is the national scientific and educational organization representing the forestry profession in the United States. Its mission is to advance the science, education, technology, and the practice of forestry; to enhance the competency of its members; to establish professional excellence; and to use the knowledge, skills, and conservation ethic of the profession to ensure the continued health and use of forest ecosystems and the present and future availability of forest resources to benefit society.

All student members have access to publications, career information, online mentoring, and connections with experts in forestry and other natural resource areas.    Membership also provides subscriptions to the Journal of Forestry, The Forestry Source, and in New York state, The New York Forester.  Many students participate in regional, state, and national programs, often at a discounted rate.   For a complete list of benefits, please click the "Member Benefits" button to the left of this window.

The environmental benefits include improving both air and water quality.  The top 10 Forestry Advances include reforestation, fire protection, affordable products and waste reduction.
