The research area’s challenges comprise the varying, sometimes conflicting objectives related to the use of forests and the impacts of climate change. The goal is to support the diversification of forest use, forest management and forest structures, and to find ways to increase forests’ adaptability and sustainability.
The goals of the research area
- Sufficient quantities of high-quality and robust forest reproductive material profitably.
- Sustainable forest management to increase biomass and high-quality raw material as well as to promote other ecosystem services.
- Forest management and forest planning concepts for holistically sustainable wood production.
