Silvicultural methods have evolved in response to historic conditions and are often confined to a national or regional setting. Are they adequate to meet the challenges of the 21st century?

An international consortium of research organisations, forest owner associations, forestry authorities and forest societies, led by the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU), will develop and test new forest management models in case study areas that cover representative forested landscapes in Europe.
