A Ukrainian citizen over 18, who is concerned about condition of forests, can be admitted to the membership. Today the Association of Ukrainian Foresters has over 24,000 members. 

To inform the local population of activities in the forest sector and to spread forestry knowledge, the State Committee of Forestry organized a division responsible for Public Relations, cooperation with Verkhovna Rada and international cooperation (tel.

Every regional administration in forest management has PR sectors or divisions, which establish cooperation with Mass Media, public organizations and community. More and more forestry enterprises strive to issue their chronicles.

With the assistance of the State Committee of Forestry, since 1995 there have been published a forest research journal “Forest and Hunting Magazine”.

Since 2003 the first channel in the National Radio has a radio programme “Forest paths” based on materials of the State Committee of Forestry.
