NASF Releases 2016 Annual Report

Tuesday, September 20, 2016

The National Association of State Foresters (NASF) unveiled the 2015-16 NASF annual report today at its meeting in Savannah, Georgia.

From city streets to remote mountainsides, trees connect a forested ecosystem that connects with people in countless ways. This is the essence of NASF's work, and the association is pleased to share recent accomplishments through this publication.

Trees are a centerpiece for many conservation organizations. NASF is unique because the association represent forestry professionals and 25,000 state employees representing the public interest. State Foresters’ responsibilities extend across the urban to rural spectrum from the Caribbean to the far reaches of the Pacific. This report is a snapshot of how NASF brings this credible expertise to the public policy and communications arenas.

Like forested ecosystems, what we do at NASF is connected to people. NASF connects State Foresters with partners and policymakers, social media and traditional media. Everything that the association does is focused by a member-defined Strategic Plan. This living document takes the individual strands of our work—policy, communications, partnerships, and management—and connects them through committees. Underpinning all is an incredible staff team working together across organizational boundaries to impact issues that respect no boundaries.

Learn more about all that our members, partners and staff have accomplished this year in the 2015-16 Annual Report.
