Nanjing Forestry University[2][3](NFU or NJFU, simplified Chinese: 南京林业大学; traditional Chinese: 南京林業大學; pinyin: Nánjīng Línyè Dàxué. Chinese abbr. 南林大 or 南林) is an institution of higher learning in Nanjing, China. It is jointly run and administered by central government of Jiangsu Provincial Government. It is a Chinese Ministry of Education Double First Class Discipline University, with Double First Class status in certain disciplines.[4]


The origin of the university can be traced back to the Forest Departments of Jinling University and Central University. In 1952, Nanjing Forestry College was established after the merger of the Forest Departments from Wuhan University, Nanchang University, and Hubei Agricultural College. It was renamed Nanjing Technological College of Forest Products in 1972. It adopted the current name in 1985.
