CERTIFICATION OF FOREST THERAPY TRAILS
There are national and international guidelines for designated Forest Therapy trails. This is to ensure a maximum of safety, comfort and benefits for all participants, clients and patients of guided Forest Therapy walks.
ANFTA is the Australasian body which certifies designated Forest Therapy trails. As such, we are in regular dialogue with the respective administrative and government bodies to ensure that designated Forest Therapy trails are set up and maintained appropriately for the Public. At the same time, ANFTA collaborates with international research partners in other countries to exchange experiences and knowledge about which trails are and can be made appropriate for Forest Therapy.
Likewise, if private organizations or individuals wish to obtain proper certification for designated Forest Therapy trails, ANFTA conducts the necessary certification process.
