Welcome to the Alabama TREASURE Forest Association

The Alabama TREASURE Forest Association (ATFA) is an organization of stewardship-minded men and women dedicated to improving the forest land of Alabama. Our forests are managed in a way to ensure the next generation will enjoy the same benefits we receive today.
The ATFA and the Alabama Farmers Federation (Alfa) joined forces in October, 2013, to create the largest forestland owner membership group in Alabama. We are here to help landowners demonstrate their commitment to sustainable forestry.
ATFA Annual Meeting
Our staff is busy making plans for the 2017 Alabama TREASURE Forest Association annual meeting set for Oct. 26-27 in Florence. Historically, this conference provides excellent opportunities for landowners to gather and learn from each other as well as industry and agency professionals on how to best manage their property. This year will be no exception, and we’re pleased to announce the addition of the Alabama Natural Resource Council’s Awards Banquet which recognizes Alabama’s premiere landowners.
Speakers from the American Chestnut Foundation, Auburn University, University of North Alabama, Alabama Forestry Commission, SuperTree Seedlings and more will be joining us to cover a broad range of topics involving forest and wildlife management. Attendees will visit a local TREASURE Forest property and have an option to tour historic music venues around the Shoals.
Registration begins Monday, Aug. 28 and costs $75. Click here for more details.
We look forward to seeing you in Florence!
