Trees as natural resource and carbon storage

Development of basic principles for sustainable producing natural raw material in various land use systems.

Current Projects

  • Baubuche : Increase of the proportion of valuable beech wood and optimizing assessment of the quality of living beech trees by terrestrial laser scanning. More
  • KonKlim : Adaptive capacity, growth plasticity and productivity of Norway spruce, silver fir and douglas fir in the context of predicted climatic changes in the Black Forest
  • Lin4Future : Development of planning tools for sustainable management of forests and application of these instruments in a model forest enterprise in China More
  • Chinawald : Research for international sustainable forest management More
