About RFSB

SRFB in brief

Founded in 1893, the Société Royale Forestière de Belgique (SRFB) aims to promote and protect the forest in all its multifunctionality. It encourages its members to practise sustainable and high-quality forestry and trains them in forest management techniques. The non-profit association deals with all aspects of forestry techniques and pays particular attention to adapting forests to climate change.

Trees for Future

Our forests are suffering from climate change: successive droughts, storms, water stress, insect and fungus attacks...

Today, most of the dominant tree species that populate our forests (spruce, beech, oak, ash...) are showing signs of weakness.

Worried, the forestry world is wondering what species it should plant and/or encourage in order to prepare the forest of tomorrow, moreresilient and able to meet the economic, ecological and social challenges of today and tomorrow.
