The advocacy organization was founded in 2003 by companies interested in woodworking. One of the reasons for its establishment was the emergence of multinational companies that have increasingly displaced and made it impossible for local wood processing companies to operate. Since then its field of activity has been extended, and the organization of wood industry entrepreneurs has now been transformed into an advocacy organization for small and medium-sized enterprises at a local, county, and national level. It continues to actively contribute to the economic development of the region supporting its members with more and more services and sectors within the Arbor. Its own defined task continues to be the training of the younger generation, the supporting of young and female entrepreneurs, the awareness of nature, and also participating in organizing community events and charitable movements.
