The subject area silviculture covers research on short- and long-term effects of silvicultural systems, forest operations and strategies on set targets for forest management, with a focus on northern temperate, boreal and tropical forests.
One important set target is growth and yield and thus the provision of wood but other ecosystem services like climate mitigation (carbon sequestration) and impacts on biodiversity (tree species diversity and amount of dead wood) are also important.
The research is based on
- long-term field experiments (many of them managed by the Unit for field-based forest research)
- survey studies
- laboratory experiments
