Norwegian Forestry Group AS is a network company with extensive experience from Eastern Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America.

NFG was established in 1996. It is organized as a limited shareholding company but operates as a non-profit company through its statutes. No dividends are paid to the owners. NFG is thus categorized as an NGO.

The shareholders of NFG are a public research institute, a forest owners association and two NGOs based in the forestry sector in Norway.

The idea behind NFG was to gather the competence from each organization in the forestry sector, and through this become a strong partner in the field of international forestry consultancy. Our strength is the ability to coordinate the use of nearly all aspects of Norwegian forestry expertise in an international development context. This enables us to combine both academic and practical, user-oriented expertise.
