Presidential Field Forester Awards

Annually, the Society of American Foresters honors 11 foresters – one from each of the 11 SAF Voting Districts – with the Presidential Field Forester Awards.  The awards recognize foresters who have demonstrated excellence in forest management through professional contributions, innovative methods, and an unwavering commitment to the profession of forestry.  The award was initiated in 2002 by SAF past-president Fred Ebel.  "Forest practitioners are the true foundation of our profession," says Ebel. "They often operate in complete anonymity, yet their actions are the single most important contribution to the viability and understanding of our profession. This is where forestry truly happens, and it is important that we recognize those who perform the art and science of forestry each and every day."
