The Congress itself will also discuss this really up to date topic, all over Europe.

All foresters are nowadays thinking about the forest of the future.

For sure, the future forests will be more resilient, with more diversity and will look like a kind of mosaic.


You’ll have an opportunity to have an overview of the French sustainable forest management during the fieldtrip on Saturday.


The French foresters are waiting for you to welcome you from 29 September 2021 evening and introduce you to the French way of life during this Congress.
