The Forestry Commission is a parastatal under the Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources Management. It contributes to national socio-economic development through regulation and capacity enhancement in the utilization and management of forest resources. Its mandate is derived from the Forest Act (Chapter 19.05 as amended in 1999) and the Communal Lands Forest Produce Act ( Chapter 20 of 1987), which provides for the Regulation of the Forestry Sector through Forestry Extension, Management of Gazetted Forests; Forestry Research and Training; and Income Generation. The mission behind its formation is to promote the sustainable management and development of the nation’s forest. The industry is based on research, training, tree planting, extension and conservation and investment in forestry and commerce. For more information, please follow this link,
