Our History

Silvix Forest Consultants was established in 1996 when the forestry division of ICI /
Zeneca opted to establish a specialist business to assist the forestry industry in South Africa as well as African and international forestry areas.

Silvix original members Julian Pybus, Mike Martyn, Kevin Edwards and Leon Martens were well known throughout the industry and were later joined by Dix van Dam, Alasdair McKenzie and Paul Thornton-Dibb, all who were also well established in the industry.

Silvix became a specialist forestry consultancy and supply business to provide outstanding service in the supply of registered forestry chemicals and provide comprehensive spray programmes as well as free training to customers on the safe application; correct storage and transport, as well as safety, health and environmental updates.

All Silvix members are AVCASA (Crop Life) accredited and are dedicated to the forestry industry in the day to day use of agro-chemicals in a responsible manner.
