At Probos we are committed to sustainable forest management. We gather, process and develop knowledge and information and communicate it to foresters, policy makers and organizations across the forest and timber sector, in the Netherlands and worldwide.
Our mission at Probos is a sustainable timber market. Strong demand from importing countries helps shape and support forest management and timber processing in producing countries.
