Kansas Forestry Association Programs
Established in 2009 the Kansas Forestry Association (KFA) is a not-for-profit organization that was formed when members of the Kansas Tree Farm Program and the Kansas Chapter of the Walnut Council merged into one governing board to represent both organizations. The resulting By-Laws of KFA were approved by the American Tree Farm System and the National Walnut Council. The KFA Board also serves as the State Forest Stewardship Coordinating Committee, advising the Kansas Forest Service in the operations of the Rural Forestry and Forest Stewardship Program. KFA now serves as the “umbrella” organization for each group but also extends membership to anyone dedicated to their vision of “Sustaining the health and productivity of Kansas woodlands, windbreaks and related natural resources.”
