Conserving Forests across the Northeast and Midwest

"Conservation is the application of common sense to the common problems for the common good.” - Gifford Pinchot

The Northeastern Area Association of State Foresters (NAASF) membership is comprised of the state forestry agencies from 20 New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwestern states plus the District of Columbia.

NAASF supports states in efforts to achieve joint forest management, conservation, and protection goals. Working closely with the Northeastern Area region of the USDA Forest Service and other partners, NAASF facilitates regional efforts related to forest health, invasive insects and pests, wildland firefighting, urban forestry, development of best practices for the protection of lands near rivers and lakes, and a variety of other areas.
