Forest policy and planning
Our group conducts research across multiple disciplines, with forest policy and planning as the bearing subjects.
The research spans widely, from model-based analyses of silvicultural alternatives, over forest planning at landscape level to comparative forest policy studies in various countries.
Our largest project ALTERFOR engages researchers from different disciplines at the department as well as from 12 partner countries across Europe.
