EUSTAFOR – European State Forest Association AISBL
EUSTAFOR represents commercially-oriented, state-owned forest companies, enterprises and agencies which have sustainable forest management and wood production as their major concerns.
EUSTAFOR’s members represent one third of the EU forest area, including large, protected areas. All members are certified by FSC and/or PEFC, meaning that annual evaluations are made in order to verify that criteria such as biodiversity and social and cultural values are met through their forest management.
The association supports and strengthens state forest organisations in Europe with a view to maintaining and enhancing their economic viability, their social and cultural benefits, as well as their ecologically responsible and sustainable forest management.
