Comprehensive, practical training to learn how to manage your woodland sustainably

  • Do you own a wood and want to discover its riches?
  • Would you like to enhance it for maximum enjoyment?
  • Do you want to make the most of your assets and earn income from them?
  • Do you want to preserve biodiversity on your property?
  • Would you like to get involved in management?
  • Would you like to be more independent and make informed decisions about your timber?
  • Would you like to share your experiences with other forest owners in a friendly atmosphere?
  • Would you like to meet woodland owners who are passionate about their forests and learn from their experience?

ForêtFor is the course for you!

SRFB would like to thank the many partners, owners and managers who are actively involved in organising these activities.


The ForêtFor is a complete introduction to forest management combining theoretical evening classes, field visits and practical exercises. It is open to all novice forest owners, regardless of the size of their forest, and to their children. This is a non-certifying training course.


By the end of the course, you will have a good grasp of the technical and administrative bases of forest management. You'll be able to situate yourself within the industry and have a clear idea of how to communicate with the various parties involved.


  • 10 evening classes (6 to 9 pm): session every first Tuesday of the month from September 2021 to June 2022 in Gembloux (Maison de la ruralité)
  • 10 days in the field: 5 Fridays and 5 Saturdays from September to November and March to June. Each practical session will be held in a different forest and region, providing an opportunity to discover a variety of forests and silvicultures.

The evening classes and field days are inseparable. Participants register for the whole module.
