Let’s come together and feel proud of where forestry is today!

CELEBRATING INNOVATION AND ADVANCEMENTS IN FORESTRY

There are plenty of innovations from an international reach and conceptual perspective, that we totally under-estimate. It is also an opportunity to demonstrate the industry, services, advancements, people and career pathways to the general public.
