Our forests are under pressure from global trade, population growth, invasive threats, and increased demand on natural resources. There is a need to advance technologies and research to create healthier and more productive forests for the betterment of the future. The Institute of Forest Biosciences was established to foster the progression of science, dialogue, and stewardship that will help in accomplishing that mission.
With the help of our Partners, we establish dialogue between diverse stakeholders that addresses the sustainability of forest biotechnology on a global scale. The IFB is in a unique position to promote societal, environmental, and responsible actions through science and technology that will lead us to understanding and building a better future for our forests.
