Forestry SFI ATFS (Sustainable Forestry)
IQC-The ISO Pros
Over the years, our forests are slowly deteriorating; and most of it is due to the need for mankind. Trees are beneficial to us – not just how they are but what they also offer. We get paper from trees, tissue, toilet rolls, even some of the things that we find at home came from them – where else do you think we get wood from?
However, even if this is the case, it’s never correct to think that a deforestation is a just act. When in fact, it’s what kills and neutralizes the condition and the overall health of the trees and other landscapes we see today. Forestry is the science or the practice of managing and taking care of forests; this is what’s needed in order to preserve and to keep all of our trees and forests healthy.

Benefits of Forestry
Forests, on their own, are beneficial to mankind. Without the sprouting of various forests, we would never be where we are now. It’s also one good avenue for us to thank them, and thanking them would just mean that we need to care for them more – that’s more than enough.
Here are some of the most common examples of the benefits of forestry:
Air pollution is everywhere – from the small towns and roads to large and vast cities, you can’t escape air pollution with the technology and the lifestyles that we live in now. With Forestry, air pollution can naturally be offset as trees absorb carbon dioxide – which is better for everyone.
Contrary to popular belief, forests aren’t actually the ones responsible for wildfires – it’s because of the constant alteration and changing of the temperature in accordance with the environment it is in. By caring for the forests, they can avoid being caught in wildfires completely. Through thinning, harvesting, and other forms of cultivating trees and other types of landscapes, they grow healthier and better.
Through the help of foresters, they blatantly find and manage watersheds in forests. Many people are not aware of this but forests act as a natural source of fresh and clean water and it’s part of the reasons why many foresters try to find these watersheds. Without forests, there’ll be no water stored – and with no water stored, all the living things that do not have the habitat, who roam forests wouldn’t be able to survive.
Those are only a few of the most common benefits of forestry and if you can see it, they’re all chained and interconnected. One benefits the other, and the other gets benefited. This is part of the main reason why the SFI or the Sustainable Forestry Initiative cares so much about these forests. They are being cared for so much that some companies who engage in any activity around forestry are greatly encouraged to get some type of Forest Management Certification.
Forest Management Certification
What is a Forest Management Certification, you may ask? It is a process where a company or an organization that is a third party assesses the quality of the forest management and production done by a particular company, business, or organization (Public or Private).
It is so in-depth that the American Tree Farm System (ATFS), an initiative that helps in the sustenance and the management of forests have some documents needed by foresters, in order for them to achieve certification. These documents include:
- Internal Monitoring Reports
- 2015 Management Plan Addendum
- ATFS Logo Rules
- ATFS Standards of Sustainability
- Individual Third-Party Certificate Information
- And Many More
