Forestry Association of Nigeria (FAN) is a duly registered (No. 4149) organization under the Land (Perpetual Succession) Act Cap. 98 of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. It was founded on 6 October, 1970 in Ibadan by a group of academics and researchers who felt the need for an umbrella organization to address issues of relevance to forestry and renewable natural resources generally.
Since it was founded, it has attracted to its fold a critical mass of forestry practitioners from the academia, the civil service, private sector and lately non-governmental organizations with interest in forestry and environment. It is the biggest and the foremost forestry organization on the continent of Africa. Perhaps no other organization has played a more dominant role in the development and conservation of renewable natural (particularly forest) resources in Nigeria than this Association. The annual Tree planting campaign, which was initiated by the Association on 05 June, 1980 is just one of the several initiatives of the Association geared towards changing the country’s biophysical environment for the better.
