Publishing a second video “Our missions as state foresters” in its #ResponsibleForestry campaign, EUSTAFOR aims to highlight that it is through the practical work of forestry experts that Sustainable Forest Management and multi-functional forestry become reality.

The preservation of biodiversity, the supply of renewable raw materials, and creating areas for recreation and well-being, are only a few examples of the roles of European state forest management.

EUSTAFOR’s 36 members are State Forest Management Organizations whose forest professionals work daily in 51 million hectares of forests and other wooded lands throughout 25 countries across Europe. These skilled and experienced experts ensure public forests are managed responsibly so they will remain resilient and adapted to current and future challenges.

Through the #ResponsibleForestry campaign, forest experts are working to build public and political awareness about the benefits of forests, while also ensuring a proper understanding of the challenges they are facing and the reasons why different types of silvicultural operations are undertaken on the ground. This video presents the various missions of state foresters.

The video is available in several subtitled versions (Spanish, Italian, and French, among others). Find the right version for you on EUSTAFOR Youtube channel
