Certified Forester

The mission of the Certified Forester program is to serve as the competency and credentialing standard for foresters; recognize a forester's education, professional experience, and commitment to the ongoing pursuit of knowledge; promote continuing education in forestry and associated disciplines; and increase public awareness of the forestry professional.

The Washington Society of American Foresters Foundation

The Foundation is being created to provide scholarships for forestry students and as a source of funds for other purposes related to forestry education. A gift of $4,500 was made to the WSSAF Executive Committee in 2002. Rather than using the funds as a resource for a one-time project, the Committee believes WSSAF will be better served by using the funds to establish a forestry education and information trust account.
