Production of high value timber

The goal is to develop the silvicultural management component for the agroforest management system, which is optimized under the given basic conditions. Another objective is the development of concepts for low-risk and cost efficient stand establishment and stand management as well as the development of growth models for the production of valuable timber. Activities improving wood quality are emphasised.

The models are tree-oriented and describe the growth of futre crop trees, including the wood quantity and quality, which are affected by management. From the models simply applicable decission tools are derived in order to transfer the knowledge into practice.
