Similar to "Tree Farmers," perhaps in minor competition with them, The Foresters is a local organization for the staff, associates, colleagues, school children, and anyone interested in forests and forestry ... all of the forest-related topics related to Rural System Tracts and their problems, values, benefits, management, and use.
Membership fees provide tours, annual conference, advantages in clothing, book, and equipment purchases, web site access, recreational advantages, and discounts on Rural System services. This is an organization for the people interested in and involved with any and all aspects of Rural System (but mostly the forests) and a means to promote the forests, reward successes, and increase communications. It may become affiliated with Right Rural and Nature Folks. Income is from membership fees, advertising, conferences, tours, and commissions on publication and book sales.
Perhaps you will share ideas with me about some of the topic(s) above .
