The Forest Treasure Chest - Delivering Outcomes for Everyone

From 4 to 8 June 2023, the IUFRO all-Division 5 conference took place in Cairns, Australia. The conference titled "The Forest Treasure Chest - Delivering Outcomes for Everyone" focused on improving sustainable trade in timber and forestry, adapting forests to climate change, and cooperation between regional forestry and indigenous communities.

The conference in tropical Cairns on the north-east coast of Australia was the first major in-person event of the 16 Units of Division 5 after the Corona-related break. A total of 140 representatives from the field of forestry and wood sciences from a wide range of cultures from 26 countries attended the event. The conference at the Cairns Convention Centre was hosted by the local IUFRO committee and primarily organized by scientists from the University of Sunshine Coast (USC).

Coming up in June: All-Division 5 Conference

The Forest Treasure Chest - Delivering Outcomes for Everyone
4-8 June 2023; Cairns, Australia

IUFRO's Division 5 has a long tradition of holding All-Division 5 Conferences. These have been organized every 4-5 years in different parts of the world since the 1970s: Capetown 1973, Oxford 1980, Madison 1983, Sao Paulo 1988, Nancy 1992, Pullman 1997, Roturua 2003, Taipei 2007, Estoril 2012 and Vancouver 2017.

This year, the All-Division 5 Conference will take place in Cairns, Australia.

IUFRO Division 5 focusses on products sourced from both natural and planted forests. While there is a historical focus on traditional solid wood products, Division 5 has expanded to include research on the wealth of offerings from living forests. At its essence, Division 5 seeks to understand the varied factors affecting the way forest plants grow and produce woody biomass, and how forest materials are used by industries and local communities.
