About ACF:

Association of Consulting Foresters (ACF) members are professionals who manage forests and market forest products for private woodland owners.

Membership in ACF is a badge that represents expertise, ethical behavior, and loyalty to landowners and their land.

In 1948, the beginning of our organization would acquaint consultants with colleagues, protect the field from charlatans by uniform standards specially designed for consulting work, disseminate new techniques as they evolved, and provide foresters and their clients, with a means of locating consulting foresters of proven ability and character.
