The Finnish Society of Forest Science

The Finnish Society of Forest Science was established in 1909 to promote research in forest and wood science in Finland. The Society is a network of researchers that strives to stimulate scientific discussion and cooperation within the forest research community, to enhance communication between researchers and practical foresters, and to promote public interest in forest research. In spite of the initial national mission, the Society has also actively participated in international scientific cooperation.

The Society has about 500 members. Several companies, non-governmental organisations, and state-funded organisations act as supporting members of the Society.
