The Topic Collection examines the effects of excess of water, drought and snow and ice in forests. The authors cover numerous issues, recommend preventative measures and provide guidance for further information.
The forestry field is closely intertwined with the climate, the atmospheric conditions and the weather.

Weather extremes such heavy rainfall but also droughts or large load of snow can permanently damage forests.
