SAF is the collective voice and community for consultants, researchers, managers, field foresters, business owners, specialists, technicians, and more. Our members represent the entire spectrum of the forestry profession – nonprofit organizations, forest products industry, public lands, universities, and independent contractors. All forestry and natural resource management students and graduates are eligible for membership with SAF.

“There are just so many opportunities—educational, leadership, and friendships—that I would have missed had I not joined SAF. What started as filling my need for continued education has turned into so much more.” –David Wells, consulting forester and chair elect of OSAF
