Synopsis: As foresters we should keep in mind that there are impeding forces to the implementation of the scientific forest knowledge we generate and the forest skills we develop. Some of these impeding forces are the legal, institutional, policy and socio-economic shortcomings hindering sustainable forest management. This general paper highlights these shortcomings with the hope that we as foresters do not only focus on biophysical aspects of forestry but also work to minimise non-biophysical aspects that hinder sustainable forestry management.
