Scientific Officer: Ignacio SEOANE
Research topic: 5.3.2. Strategies for the sustainable and multipurpose utilisation of forest resources; the forestry-wood chain

Abstract:
Storms regularly damage the European forests. The estimated 180 million m3 of fallen trees constitutes a great experimental field for improvement of methods for efficient and safe harvesting and log conservation. Harmonised procedures will be defined for evaluation and comparison of methods. A complete survey of publications and patents will collect the available methods and their implementation conditions. Remaining unsolved questions will be identified; an inventory of ongoing research will show the relevant additional experiments to be conducted. Partners will organise exploitation of ongoing and additional experiments. Short term staff exchange will facilitate experience sharing. A technical users' guide, also accessible via a web site, and a technical seminar, will ensure efficient dissemination.
