New England Society of American Foresters - Keeping forest ecosystems healthy and intact, managing the effects of natural and human forces on the forests

Welcome to the New England Society of American Foresters

Please browse our pages and learn more about the NESAF mission and activities. If you are a professional forester and not yet a member of SAF, please visit our membership page and find out what membership can do for you! 


Earlier this year National SAF stopped offering assistance in conducting electronic elections for State Societies (NESAF) and their subordinate units. 
Rather than going back to paper ballots for all, the NESAF Executive Committee has decided to go to electonic balloting and use Survey Monkey® for those members with email addresses and paper ballots only for those without email. 
All current members with an e-mail on file were sent an e-mail on 10/17/2016 with links to their Division/Chapter election ballot.
If you do not have an e-mail on file, you have been mailed a paper ballot.
For information about 2016 Elections please see our Elections page.
