Summaries of FAO's work in forestry

The notes on this Web site summarize FAO's key work in forestry. Taken together, they form a compendium of the most critical forest-related issues affecting foresters, policy-makers and the public today - and a composite picture of the breadth and depth of FAO's work in support of the world's forests and trees and the people who depend on them.

A published packet of these notes, Forests and forestry: FAO and its work, can be obtained by contacting: FO-publications@fao.org
