Southern Forests: A Journal of Forest Science

The Department of Forestry, Fisheries and the Environment (DFFE) was renamed on 1 April 2021, from the previous Department of Environment, Forestry and Fisheries (DEFF). In June 2019 the DFFE had been established by incorporating the forestry and fisheries functions from the previous Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries into the Department of Environmental Affairs.

The DFFE mandated to give effect to the right of citizens to an environment that is not harmful to their health or well-being, and to have the environment protected for the benefit of present and future generations. To this end, the Department provides leadership in environmental management, conservation and protection towards sustainability for the benefit of South Africans and the global community.

South African Forestry Handbook

The Handbook was edited by Brian Bredenkamp and Sally Upfold. The contents include an introduction by Michael Edwards and a brief history of the South African forest industry written by Willie Louw.

Fire Manager's Handbook on Veld and Forest Fires

The SAIF, in conjunction with William C Teie, published the 2nd edition of the Fire Managers Handbook on Veld and Forest Fires in 2009. Tiaan Pool of NMMU Saasveld edited the Handbook.

The Handbook offers the user a thorough understanding of the numerous complicated principles and procedures to ensure safe and effective forest fire fighting. Knowledge to be gained from the Handbook includes: how to predict fire behaviour; control line construction; proper use of water; incident command and organisation; how to use aircraft; how to protect structures during a major wildfire and most of all, how to fight a wildfire safely.
