Project: Validation and optimalisation of forestfriendly harvesting in Flanders
- project duration
- 03-JUL-06 – 02-JUL-08
- In a previous study, Flemish forest soils were classified depending on their vulnerability to damage by harvesting. This classification will now be validated by taking field measurements, also examining the current degradation state and recovery potential. The second research part concerns the senistization of the forest industry about soil damage, and the development of ecologically and economically sound harvesting methods.
