Project: Environmental, social and economic Feasibility of Forest CONversion (FEFOCON)
- project duration
- 01-DEC-03 – 28-FEB-06
- Forest is suffering from soil acidification and eutrophication coming from pollution. At the same time, the Belgian policy maker tries to encourage sustainable forest management. Through the conversion of coniferous forests (pine in Flanders, spruce in Wallonia) into mixed species forests considerable progress could be made with both these fields. The FEFOCON-project evaluates the environmental, social and economic consequences for society and forest owners.
