Lowland Forestry Association | AFP

You have probably never seen them, but in between the oaks and hornbeams of the forests of the flatlands, lots of people take care of our forests. Tireless and efficient like ants in an ant nest. They are the people of the Lowland Forestry Association (AFP), the association that groups the best managers of lowland forests, coordinating the responsible forest management in conformity with the principles of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC®).

Since early 2000, these men and women teamed up, collaborating and supporting each other so that lowland forests are properly valued: only when their importance will be fully understood they will receive the attention they deserve.

To do that, AFP promotes and broadcasts studies and research; develops projects that favour the use of the forests by local populations while respecting, at the same time, the forms of life that inhabit them and the functioning of the ecosystem; and strives to ensure that the resources needed for the protection and management of forests are put in place.
