WELCOME

 

The Local Organising Committee and the Conference Committee of the International Union of Forest Research Organisations (IUFRO) All Division 5 Conference would like to invite you to Cairns, Australia in June 2023.

Cairns is the gateway to the rest of the Tropical North Queensland region,  fly directly to Cairns Airport (domestically or internationally) to discover one of Queensland’s most adventurous cities.  The weather in June is mild with maximum temperatures averaging 24 degrees Celsius and minimum temperatures averaging 14 degrees Celsius

IUFRO Division 5 focusses on products sourced from both natural and planted forests. While there is a historical focus on traditional solid wood products, Division 5 has expanded to include research on the wealth of offerings from living forests. At its essence, Division 5 seeks to understand the varied factors affecting the way forest plants grow and produce woody biomass, and how forest materials are used by industries and local communities. Specific topics include: the microscopic and macroscopic structure of wood and its utilization; engineering properties; protection in storage and use; wood physics; drying, conversion, and performance of solid wood and wood composites; production of energy and chemicals from trees. It also includes research on the production, characteristics, and use of non-wood forest products, such as bamboo and rattan in addition to medicinal and edible components of forest crops. An overarching theme across all these research activities is the efficient and sustainable use of forests for the good of mankind today and into the future.
