Celebrating 75 Years of Sustainable Forestry @ Montesano Jr-Sr High  | Montesano | Washington | United States

Seventy-Five years ago this year, the American Tree Farm System (ATFS) established the first certified tree farm in North America on the Clemons Tree Farm near the City of Montesano, in Grays Harbor County, Washington. From that beginning , the ATFS has grown to over 80,000 family owned tree farms nationwide, and over 900 in Washington State alone. A coalition of forestry partners has come together to organize the celebration of the significant milestone.

The morning will be a ceremony “Honoring Tree Farmers” who epitomize what it is to be Stewards of the Land, and then head out for some interesting forester-led tours of Lake Sylvia State Park after lunch at Montesano high school.
