About Us

Confor: promoting forestry and wood is, first and foremost, a members' organisation, funded by and accountable to people and businesses who own forests and who work in forestry or with wood and forest products.  The aim is to support sustainable forestry and low-carbon businesses through promotion of markets for forest products and helping improve members' competitiveness.

Confor's remit covers all parts of the wood supply chain, from nurseries through to forest owners, agents, contractors, harvesters, sawmills and other users of wood.  Confor is here to provide the sector with a strong voice in the market place and in all levels of government - international, UK and local.
