The Forest Research Institute (FVA) is the state's research institution for forests and is under the responsibility of the Ministry of Food, Rural Areas and Consumer Protection of Baden-Württemberg (MLR). The legal mandate of the FVA is to contribute to ensuring sustainable forest management on a scientific basis through application-oriented research in all forest-related matters.
