In this short news clip, we talk about the IUFRO, the world's network of forest scientists, a non-profit organization who promote global cooperation in forest-related research and the enhancement of the understanding of the ecological, economic and social aspects of forests and trees.

IUFRO's chairman, Jeremy Rayner, said that it is vital to look at the global demands for farm forest land and stop deforestation wherever possible.
