Danish Forestry Extension promotes responsible forest management to combat climate change and create socio-economic development among rural communities.

We believe that forests play a vital role for the local and global society. We use wood for furniture, construction, central heating, paper, and much more. And in forests we find recreational space, sophisticated ecosystems, and the world’s best instrument to sequester carbon. It is safe to say, that trees and forests are of vital importance to us all.

However, around the globe, millions of smallholder farmers and small communities lack access to knowledge on how to manage their trees, how to organize, and how to gain market access for their forest products. This shortage of knowledge typically results in deforestation and land degradation. That is why we facilitate development initiatives around the globe to make our experience with forest management and community building available. Because our know-how about forest management is a forceful tool to safeguard the environment, protect the climate, and encourage farmers and locals to harvest socio-economic benefits from nature in a sustainable manner.

Our history

Danish Forestry Extension is the international department of Skovdyrkerne. Our parent organization unite more than 5,000 private forest owners. For more than 100 years, Skovdyrkerne has provided forestry extension services to Danish forest owners, helping them to organize to sell their wood and represent their interests.

Acknowledging that the same needs exist outside of Denmark, Danish Forestry Extension was established in 1992. The idea was to use decades of experience to make a difference abroad. Since then, we have focused on international development activities related to forest management and strengthening of local forest associations. Today, our expertise and international engagement has spread throughout the world and spans more than 25 countries in Europe, Africa and Asia.
