Washington political and forestry leaders celebrate 75th anniversary of 1st US tree farm
U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer and Tom Martin, President of the American Forest Foundation, will be among the elected officials and other leaders celebrating the 75th Anniversary of America's first tree farm in Montesano, on Saturday. The nation's first tree farm, founded in the Washington town in 1941, ushered in an era of certified sustainable forestry and family forestry. The Clemons Tree Farm was the first ever certified tree farm, and the U.S now has 80,000 family-owned tree farms, 900 of which are in Washington. Like the Clemons farm, all are certified by the American Tree Farm System (ATFS).
