About the Program

The theme “The New Normal” was chosen as a testament to what we have been through in these past two years, and as a way to focus on the challenges and opportunities that are new realities within the forest sector. This year’s Conference aims to provide delegates with practical information concerning:

  • Growing forests under a changing climate
  • Forests and carbon markets
  • Silviculture in the 21st century
  • How to meet the demands of a changing forest product basket
  • International forest resource trade and economics
  • Sustainable forest management planning
  • Wildfire risks and emerging science
  • Forest knowledge transfer, how to find answers in a sea of information
