The International Family Forestry Alliance

Welcome to CEPF

Experience the variety of Europe’s forests and the people who live in them.  
The Confederation of European Forest Owners (CEPF) is the umbrella association of national forest owner organizations in Europe. It works as the representative of family forestry in Europe, by promoting the values of sustainable forest management, private property ownership and the economic viability of the forest holding.
CEPF's mission is to assist and strengthen an economically viable, socially beneficial, culturally valuable and ecologically responsible sustainable management of private forests.

CEPF serves the interests of the approximately 16 million forest owners. They are private individuals, families and cooperatives who take care of about 60% of the forest area within Europe.
These forests pass from one generation to the next through inheritance. The forests are not only inherited from our parents, they are on loan from our children.
