MEDIA RELEASE

IFA/AFG announces new identity – Forestry Australia The Institute of Foresters of Australia and Australian Forest Growers has changed its name to Forestry Australia.

Forestry Australia CEO Jacquie Martin said the new name better represented the broad scope of forest and land management work undertaken by its members.

“The name Forestry Australia is more representative of our membership, which is made up of Australian scientists, professionals and growers who manage, study and care for our forests,” Ms Martin said. “The interactions that humans have with forests are changing every day, and the way our members manage forests is always evolving, alongside the most up-to-date science and research.

“That’s why it’s important our identity keeps pace with these changes in approach, and the public understands what Forestry Australia members do and what they stand for.

“Our skilled and knowledgeable scientists, professionals and growers who manage, study and care for our forests offer nature-based solutions for some of society’s most significant challenges, including catastrophic bushfires, biodiversity decline and climate change.

“We consulted widely with our members and the general public in arriving at this name, and we’re very proud to be able to announce it at our national conference with so many of our members and other forestry stakeholders in attendance both in person and online.”
