Dear SA Forestry Readers,

COVID-19 came to our shores early in 2020. It changed many aspects of our lives and disrupted the business landscape on its way through. As I write this, the fallout from the pandemic is still with us and continues to challenge us on so many levels.

SA Forestry magazine – like most other businesses – has had to adapt to the new reality, and so 2021 sees the start of a whole new chapter in the way we publish.

The November edition will be the last regular printed edition of SA Forestry. From January 2021 we will be primarily publishing our trademark forestry news and features on this website as well as a monthly, digital SA Forestry eNewsletter that will be mailed out free to stakeholders via email.

SA Forestry Annual
In addition, we will publish one mighty, printed SA Forestry Annual per year. This will have thicker paper, more pages, and more photos, articles and features about forestry in South Africa than ever before. It will include all the best articles and reviews of the past year in forestry, and will serve both as a historical record of the year and as a showcase for the Forestry Sector going forward.

The first edition of the SA Forestry Annual will be published in November 2021. In order to secure your copy of the Annual, you will need to subscribe. The cost is just R 175.00. Pay by EFT (details at the bottom of this page) and don’t forget to send us your name, contact details and postal address with the payment notification.

If you have subscribed to SA Forestry magazine already and still have magazines due to you under that subscription, you will receive the 2021 SA Forestry Annual at no additional cost. Please check in with our Subscription Manager, Debbie Walsh, to ensure your delivery details are correct.

All the info you need to continue to enjoy SA Forestry on our website, eNewsletter and Annual magazine is detailed at the bottom of this page.

Publishing since 1986
SA Forestry has been publishing since 1986, and we will continue to provide the news and info that helps to keep you, our readers, informed and motivated about everything to do with forestry right here on the southern top of Africa.
