Centre National de la Propriété Forestière
The CNPF (national forest ownership centre) contributes to the development of sustainable management in the French private forests. In France, 75% of the forests belong to 3,5 millions private owners. The CNPF’s technicians assist these forest owners through sylvicultural training and knowledge dissemination. The R&D service identifies needs, draws up specifications for solutions to respond to climate change and develops innovations such as the Low Carbon certification for carbon offsetting.
