Growth responses to interventions during the transition of Douglas fir and oak plantations to irregular structures.

A major gap in our knowledge relating to the transition of even-aged stands to permanently irregular structures is the lack of stand/ yield models. This meeting will consider this issue in light of increment and growing stock information in a number of Douglas fir stands in various stages of transformation and will also consider the growth response of oak plantations subject to innovative thinning regimes. 

We advise you to bring a packed lunch and clothing to suit any weather we may encounter.

Spaces are limited to 40 people so please book early to avoid disappointment.

ThinkForest webinar on Closer to Nature Forest Management – recording Available

In case you missed the event or want to watch it again, a recording of the event is now available on Youtube.

A presentation on the study ‘Closer to Nature Forest Management’ held in the event by Prof. Jørgen Bo Larsen is available here.


The ThinkForest event asks:

• What are the current pressures on forest biodiversity in managed forests as well as on forests’ health and resilience?

• What kind of existing nature-based forest management approaches are there – and what is their ability to support biodiversity, stability and adaptability to uncertain future conditions?

• What could be the guiding principles and framework for flexible European-wide implementation of Closer-to-Nature Forest Management?

• What are the barriers and opportunities for its implementation?
