Comming event: Forest excursion in Latvia, May 15-17

Group discussion on an excursion in September 2016.

Skogssällskapet invites to a forest excursion in Latvia on May 15-17 2017. The main topic on the trip will be silviculture on highly productive forest- and former agriculture land.

We have all seen in the field that planted young forest in Latvia grows very good. Much better than what was anticipated when the stands were planted. Skogssällskapet have thereby made new inventories of young forests planted by us some 5-10 years ago. The results have also been analyzed along with simulations of different management intensities.

On the trip are also prof. Urban Nilsson from SLU and Mattias Berglund, Silviculture Manager on Skogssällskapet in Sweden to discuss questions about stand densities, number of needed pre-commercial thinnings and commercial thinnings and how such decisions affects the forest´s volume and value development. Our ambition with the excursion is to give you more knowledge of the latest research on the topic and to share the results of our own resent findings.

You will also get the opportunity to meet Skogssällskapet Baltic´s new MD, Per Bergenheim, who will join us on the trip.
