About us

The Future of Forestry is an initiative taken by FAM. This is a platform for conversation, knowledge sharing and collaboration in forest-related questions, with regards to FAM’s interest in the forest and forestry. The protection and development of the forest’s biological diversity is a key issue for the present and future forest industry – and a prerequisite for forest raw materials to continue to play a crucial role in replacing fossil raw materials in society.

Feel free to contact us at contact@futureforestry.se if you want to be part of the conversation about Sweden’s perhaps most important resource!
