IUFRO President Prof. Mike Wingfield celebrated the 125th Anniversary of the establishment of the world’s oldest and largest association of forest researchers at a gala dinner on 20 September in the Historiches Kaufhaus (historical Merchant’s Hall) in Freiburg, Germany. He welcomed more than invited 120 guests from around the world including several FABI Management Committee members: Prof. Bernard Slippers, Drs Irene Barnes, Sanushka Naidoo and Brett Hurley, IUFRO liaison officer Morné Booij-Liewes and IUFRO country coordinator/ICFR Knowledge Manager, Sally Upfold who were all attending the IUFRO 125th Anniversary Congress.

Located on the historical Münsterplatz, the Kaufhaus’ scarlet façade is a landmark on the square. It was opened in 1532 but would be rebuilt and remodelled a number of times since before being renovated in 1988 to its current splendour.
