Policy & Advocacy

State forestry agency delivery of many forestry management, outreach, and assistance programs is influenced and mandated by numerous federal laws and policies.

NASF is a leading authority on forest policy and our members are valued for their leadership, expertise, and public-trust commitment to managing and conserving non-federal trees and forests.

We advocate legislation and policies that promote the role of trees, forests, and the professionals that manage them in addressing ecological, social, and economic issues.
