Description of European Forestry

Timber, energy or recreation? What is the best way to use this enormous resource?

VISIONS of what forestry should contribute to society have diversified greatly over the years and views on what sustainable forest management is are becoming increasingly complex. The role of forests and nature in safeguarding our living environment has grown in importance, resulting in a strong focus on how we can use and should manage this resource. At the same time, demand for forest products such as timber, energy and recreation is also increasing.
