Welcome to forext.eu!

This newly established website shares information about the network of forest extension organizations in Europe (FOREXT).

Forest extension covers activities of state administration directed towards supporting private forestry that goes beyond just advising them. FOREXT was established in 2019 to ensure international cooperation in the field.

Our members represent 14 organisations in 10 European countries. Together we aim to to build their capacities in training and education of private forest owners, supporting the development of their associations, inventorying and marking of private forests, preparation of forest management plans for private forests, enforcement of forest legislation in private forests, providing subsidies for more sustainable forest management, organizing sale of wood from private forests, capacity building for private forestry, etc.
