Watch the Symposium ‘Native hardwoods, the resilience of the forest sector?’

How can the forest value chain work more with hardwood? What type of technical frameworks and innovation are needed? How can resilience be assessed? What are local and European challenges and opportunities of the promotion of broadleaves in the forest and the use of hardwood? After the successful Symposium on Hardwoods held in Lugo from February 28 to March 1 2024, presentations from over 30 speakers are now available online. These showcase the current state-of-the-art regarding broadleaves forests in Europe and Galicia, along with the associated short, medium, and long-term challenges and advantages.

The three-day symposium brought together approximately 120 attendees and 32 experts from ten countries to evaluate the present situation and future opportunities presented by hardwoods within the forest value chain.
