Welcome to the Montana SAF

Thriving forests. Essential resources. Strong communities.

We challenge land-owners, decision-makers and society at large to make choices about our forests based on professional knowledge, leading-edge thinking and a century of practical experience.

We seek viable pathways forward, balancing diverse demands on our natural resources.

We set the standard in forest management, bringing science, best practice and the best people together to actively shape the future of the profession.

‘For the greatest good. For the greatest number. For the long run.’
