Ecological forestry in Europe

Most European forests are in bad shape, making them easy prey for pests, diseases and fires. To restore the health of our timber producing forests, we need to manage them in a way that works with nature, not against it. Join us to hear practitioners’ experiences and discuss what it will take to mainstream ecological forestry in Europe.
