Forest Research Institute Malaysia (GPS: 3.23486, 101.62984) or FRIM is the agency under the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment that looks into the management and use of forest resources. The institute manages a 486-hectare forest park in Kepong, 16 km to the northeast of Kuala Lumpur.

The Forest Research Institute Malaysia traces its history to 1926, when the Chief Conservator of Forest, Mr G.M. Cubitt requested Mr. F.W. Foxworthy to set up a forest research unit. Foxworthy selected the site in northern Kepong.

The first batch of experimental plantation involving lowland hardwood forest species such as the Dipterocarp was conducted in 1928. By the early 1930's, the plantation established by the institute has grown to 125 hectares. By the time Malaya gained independence, the institute had some 220 hectares of forested plantation comprising 201 species of Dipterocarp trees and 168 species of non-Dipterocarp trees.

Today the Forest Research Institute Malaysia is a place where the general public can get to know more about the tropical rain forest and its trees. There are recreational activities at the protected forest including various sports and mountain biking.

The road leading to the Forest Research Institute Malaysia is named Jalan Foxworthy in honour of its founder.
