How we work

At Cesefor we support the forestry and rural environment through companies, administrations and other public or private bodies. We have seven main lines of work, for which we develop different projects, managing them according to their specific needs.

As well as contributing to the sustainable development of the forestry sector and improving the competitiveness of the companies that have trust in us, we have also worked closely with leading organisations in the sector such as universities, technology centres, professional associations and business organisations. Together with them, we have developed interesting and fruitful initiatives.
