Consider it the United Nations of forestry.

The World Forest Institute at the World Forestry Center is the vision of Harry Merlo. Since 1990, more than 100 young professional foresters from around the world have come to Portland to work and study at the World Forest Institute. Here, in the cradle of international forestry, professionals learn about best management practices and state of the art applications.

After a year, they return to their home countries to apply their skills in highly responsible jobs. From Finland to Australia, from China to Brazil, from Siberia to Africa, these forestry fellows of the World Forest Institute, each funded in part by the Merlo Foundation, are reshaping the destiny of their precious forests.

From Portland and the World Forest Institute, forestry knowledge is being exported to the world, sustaining the benefits of healthy forests to humanity.
