Description: Trees For Tomorrow (TFT) started in 1944 to help reforestation efforts in northern Wisconsin. Initially, Trees For Tomorrow was focused on giving out free tree seedlings and assisting with forest management. Once the reforestation effort was largely completed, TFT shifted more toward education. Today TFT is an accredited Natural Resources Specialty school that focuses on educating students, teachers, and other adults about the wise use and management of natural resources. The campus is located on about 30 acres with an interpretative walking trail within it.
