The Mississippi Society of American Foresters is one of 33 state and multi-state societies that make up the Society of American Foresters, an organization of professional foresters dedicated to the advancement of the science and practice of forestry. Our 600 state members constitute the largest professional forestry organization in Mississippi.
Our members work for state and federal agencies, universities and colleges, forest products companies and private consulting firms, large and small landowners, as well as environmental and political organizations. Although our professional viewpoints vary, we share a common goal - the wise use of the Mississippi's forest resources.
Looking for a Chapter
The Mississippi Society of American Foresters consists of eight local chapters and two student chapters. The role of these chapters is to promote forestry locally by providing forestry expertise and undertaking projects that enhance the knowledge of sound forestry practices. Each chapter meets several times throughout the year for food, fellowship, and forestry programs.
