Coalition Letter to Farm Bill Conference Committee 

September 5, 2018 

SAF and over 60 partner organizations representing millions of forest owners, conservationists, hunters, anglers, forest products manufacturers, and natural resource professionals sent a letter to the Farm Bill Conference Committee. As the Conference Committee works to find common ground and merge the House and Senate versions, the Forests in the Farm Bill Coalition's letter highlights key provisions and funding levels that are vital to the health and sustainability of our nation's forests. 

Keeping forests as forests and promoting science-based, sustainable management ultimately protects watersheds and soils, improves air quality, creates wildlife habitat, supports well-paying jobs, and provides renewable energy and essential forest products.
