Benefits of the Program

This insurance program * provides General Liability coverage and a specific Foresters Professional Liability endorsement for forestry consultants. Forestry consultants are university-educated professionals providing a variety of services to public and private landowners. Program guidelines require that consulting foresters have a forestry degree. Certificates of Insurance must be obtained from Independent Contractors used for projects. Our insurance program is endorsed by the Association of Consulting Foresters (ACF) and preferred pricing is available to those consulting foresters who are active members of the ACF.

*All Insureds are added as a Named Insured Certificate Holder on a Master Policy. Coverage is provided on a non-admitted basis and subject to all applicable surplus lines taxes and fees.
