Research at the ICFR is focussed around supporting the South African forestry sector in facing current challenges and changes, including the need to produce more wood which is fit-for-purpose in several different markets, more efficiently, and with less risk of crop loss.  Our research aims to produce the technical knowledge needed to grow trees successfully and profitably, and deliver recommendations which are accessible and relevant to all tree growers in an increasingly diverse sector.
