SPGS opened up a facebook account with the purpose of raising its platform for improved interaction with the key stakeholders in the forestry sector across the world. Since August 2013, a number of comments in various nature from; tree growers, contractors, forestry institutions, and many other well wishers in the forestry fraternity have been dropped on our facebook wall.
