Montana Tree Farm Scholarship
DEADLINE: September 15, 2017

This is a $500 scholarship offered to one student annually.

The American Tree Farm SystemŽ (ATFS) is a network of more than 83,000 woodland owners sustainably managing 26 million acres of forestland. It is the largest and oldest sustainable family woodland system in America, internationally recognized, meeting strict third-party certification standards. There are over 400 Tree Farmers in MT who own about 1.2 million acres of forest land.

For 70 years, ATFS has enhanced the quality of America's woodlands by giving forest owners the tools they need to keep their forests healthy and productive. Stemming the loss of America's woodlands is vital to our country's clean water and air, wildlife habitat, recreational activities, and producing the jobs, wood and paper products we all need. ATFS is a program of the American Forest Foundation.
