The logo of the Alliance for Responsible Forest Management signifies our aim to create a coordinated global support network to promote awareness, training and implementation of best management practices in commercial tropical forests.
The top row of the emblem applies the symbol of literature, to represent continuous scholarly understanding of knowledge and best practice in the implementation of responsible forest management.
The middle row of the emblem applies three symbols to represent three geographic tropical regions where the ARFM is active. On the left, the Lion, representing Africa, in the middle, the Eagle, representing Latin America, on the right, the Tiger, representing Asia-Pacific.
The bottom row of the emblem applies the symbol of the World, with hands on either side representing the careful balanced approach to implementing responsible forest management.
The text on the bottom of the emblem, ‘Silva Pro Omnibus’, is written in Latin, the universal language used in forest dendrology for the nomenclature of tree species. The text translates to ‘Forests for All’.
The wreath surrounding the emblem, signifies the ‘olive branch’, used to represent a universal and peaceful approach to fostering responsible forest management in commercial tropical forests.
