Silviculture sciences play very important role in sustainable forest management through ensuring the sustainability of forest ecosystem functions (habitat, regulation, production, and information funtions), and increasing positive impact toward socio-economic in maintaining and improving forest productivity, as well as in achieving sustainable development.

Studies on forest ecosystem functions need further research, sharing and dissemination of research report among stakeholders. Therefore, it needs a forum to facilitate sharing and dissemination for academicians, researchers, practitioners, and policy makers.

The 3rd International Conference on Tropical Silviculture (ICTS 2021) that organized by Department of Silviculture, Faculty of Forestry and Environment, IPB University will be held virtually on 24 August 2021. Theme of this conference is: “Inspiring Silviculture Innovation and Research in Achieving Sustainable Development Goals”. Nine topics will be discussed in ICTS 2021, includes: biomass energy forest, forestry business, forest fire & climate change, agroforestry and forest plantation, ecosystem services, biodiversity, non-timber forest product, un-even aged silviculture, and forest degradation and rehabilitation.

This conference is expected to contribute in sharing information, knowledge, innovation, as well as providing solutions to various problems and obstacles in achieving sustainable forest. Furthermore, outputs of this activity will be published in Scopus accredited proceeding and journals, e.g.: IOP Conference Series: Earth & Environmental Science, HAYATI Journal of Biosciences, and JMHT (Jurnal Manajemen Hutan Tropika).
