Case study Q&A
What are the silvicultural measures applied – if any?
Sanitary practices for bark-beetle. Promoting uneven-aged mixed stands. Promoting biodiversity-friendly practices (e.g. keeping veteran trees). Planting several drought resistant species in some gaps created by disturbance. Testing new species (small area planting).
What is the amount of the wood harvested?
The harvested volume in the case study area represents 40 000 m3 per year in public forest and 20 000 m3 per year in private forest, mostly coniferous species (97% in public forests). The average annual increment is 141 000 m3.
