Presidential Field Forester

Practitioners often operate in nearly complete anonymity, yet their actions are one of the most important and visible contributions to the viability and understanding of our profession.  This is where forestry truly happens and it is important that those who perform the art and science of forestry each and every day are recognized.  Eleven members (one from each SAF district) are selected for this award annually.
