About the project:

The project deals with the ability of managed forests to provide ecosystem functions in future conditions characterized by higher drought and heatwaves occurrence – wood production (inc. carbon storage) and climate change mitigation (regulation of landscape energy and water balance) in the Czech Rep. and Norway. We will focus on 1) different site conditions; 2) potential for adaptation of important tree spec. (spruce; pine; beech), 3) potential for silvicultural measures implementation, 4) potential to apply those measures in practise. The goals will be reached by use of: timelines, climate models for predictions (till 2050); remote sensing and validation of its outputs with detailed field measurements both in long-term research plots and forests managed by VLS and Glommen-Mjøsen.
