5.00.00 - Forest Products
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.

This Division includes research on the varied factors affecting the way forest plants grow and produce woody biomass and other products and the various ways the materials are used by industries and communities. Specific topics include: the microscopic and macroscopic structure of wood and its utilization; engineering properties; protection in storage and use; wood physics; drying, conversion, and performance of solid wood and wood composites in use; production of energy and chemicals from trees. It also includes research on the production, characteristics, and use of non-wood forest products, such as medicinal and edible components of forest crops. A very strong theme is the efficient and sustainable use of forests for the good of mankind.
Every four to five years the Division holds an All-Division 5 conference. The previous one took place in Vancouver, Canada; June 12-16, 2017. More information
