The Norwegian Union of Forestry and Land Workers (Norwegian: Norsk Skog- og Landarbeiderforbund) was a trade union in Norway, organized under the national Norwegian Confederation of Trade Unions.

It was founded in 1927 after the Julussa Conflict, and experienced the Randsfjord Conflict from 1930 to 1935. In addition to forestry and farm workers, it organized timber rafters, market gardeners and other rural workers.[1]

In 1988 it was merged with the Norwegian Union of Clothing Workers, the Norwegian Union of Iron and Metalworkers, the Norwegian Union of Building Industry Workers and the Norwegian Union of Paper Industry Workers to form the United Federation of Trade Unions.[2] It had about 7,200 members before the merger.[1]
