Their impact is greatest where they occur year-round and thus also breed there. For this, the average deadwood volume needs to be at least 33 m3 per hectare.

Tree growth on the fast track

Continuous monitoring of growth on experimental forest plots since 1870 – this is a global rarity. Just as fascinating is what this observation has revealed: our trees have been growing faster over the last five decades than they did before.

Productivity models for wood harvesting operations

The productivity model HeProMo allows to estimate productivity and costs of different harvesting operations.
