Sustainability and the Practice of
Responsible Forestry Management
Major South African forestry companies have set responsible forestry management as one of their top priorities. This is in response to the fact that the forestry industry in Africa is still characterized by manually intensive operations. Management and utilization of large plantations, especially in remote regions, require modern silvicultural solutions.
The lack of investment in the maintenance and upgrade of machinery and equipment, and access to scarce skills exacerbates the already challenging silvicultural environment.
“Silvicultural operations in Africa can be modernized to supply decent work to labour. ”
In addition to being plagued by dangerous and ergonomically inferior working conditions, manual labor is forced to cope with unacceptably high safety risks. Coupled with the low social status of manual labor, increasing worker abseenteism and high turnover in the forestry industry, it seems evident that the forestry industry in Africa needs socially sustainable solutions.

Embrace the Fact that
Skills matter for productivity, they matter for upward social mobility and they matter for safety.
The multi-skilling of operators, the improvement of supervisor engagement, and a continual focus on new practices to promote the well-being and productivity of silvicultural labour and operators will ultimately decrease rural to urban migration as manual labourers gain more skills and social esteem.
