CEPF - The Confederation of European Forest Owners


CEPF is the umbrella association of national forest owner organisations in the European Union. It works as the representative of family forestry in Europe, by promoting the values of private property ownership.

CEPF's mission is to assist and strengthen the economically viable, socially beneficial, culturally valuable and ecologically responsible sustainable management of private forests. CEPF serves the interests of approximately 16 million forest owners; they are private individuals and families who take care of more than half of the forest area within the European Union.
