Revue Forêt.Nature

Who are we?

Forêt.Nature is a non-profit organization composed of a multidisciplinary technical team that facilitates the transfer of knowledge (knowing) and skills (know-how) through the fields of continuous professional training, communication, web development, publishing, and scientific popularization.

Forêt.Nature also ensures the development of continuous cover forestry (CCF) and manages national and European projects with its partners.

The non-profit organization was founded in 1987 by forest enthusiasts to raise awareness about the complexity, beauty, and fragility of this ecosystem.

Nearly 35 years after its creation, Forêt.Nature tirelessly continues its work in the service of living forests. 

Article 3 of our statutes states, "The association aims to popularize and disseminate knowledge to managers to ensure the sustainable management of ecosystems where trees are present. The association does the same for other actors in the forest-wood sector and also raises public awareness about all the challenges of these ecosystems..

It pursues the realization of its social purpose by all necessary means, including activities such as:

  • Continuous or initiation professional training
  • Technical support and management advice
  • Research and development, particularly in the field of continuous cover forestry, the link between forestry and biodiversity, and technical innovation in the forest-wood sector
  • Publishing, communication, web
  • Scientific popularization
  • Project management at the regional, national, and international levels
  • Sensitization and mobilization of professionals and citizens".
