Forestry

At CENARE Advisory, we harness decades of experience in forestry-related services to provide the right solutions for your research project’s specific forest management challenges.
We provide a range of services to support sustainable management of natural and planted forests. Our expertise in forestry, ecology, environmental sciences, geographic information systems (GIS), and remote sensing allows us to provide effective and cost-efficient solutions that address a wide range of forest management challenges.
We have extensive experience in implementing a variety of forestry projects in Africa. Our broad international network of associates and partnerships with various institutions ensures expert attention to your project’s challenges.
