Our institution is one of the three oldest faculties in Republic of North Macedonia (RNM), who are also founding members of the Ss. Cyril and Methodius University. Established in 1947, as part of the former Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry, the institution for a long time bore the recognizable name Faculty of Forestry in Skopje, until 2019. Since then, for better representation of all aspects the faculty deals with nowadays, both in education and in science and practice, which are much broader than the classical understanding of forestry, the name of our institution is Hans Em Faculty of Forest Sciences, Landscape Architecture and Environmental Engineering (HEF).
